Stretch Your Imagination (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo

[Author’s Note: A short and simple piece about being as creative as possible, and seeking to inspire others to do the same.]

Stretch your imagination.

Extend it past the boundaries

defined by reality and the mundane.

Fantasize about impossibilities made true

then craft each one in careless abandon

yet thoughtful awe.

Unleash them one step at a time to forge a new pathway

and guide wonderstruck visitors among your many creative visions.


encourage other dreamers

to pave their own ways forward

as you cheer for their progress.

  1. You have succeeded in conveying your creative message in such a flowing way Joyce..I love the end thought of inspiring each that not the true idea of an artistic community? You have expressed it more beautifully than I can:)

  2. I absolutely love encouraging others. Stretching my limits is my passion, but sometimes, for some reason, I’m not keen on actually taking the time and putting in the effort. It’s weird. They say that for work you should do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life. I have to disagree. I love to be creative and write, but I cannot keep it up on a constant basis.
