"Creativity is the highest form of mental functioning." - E. Paul Torrance


You are Frodo Baggins
After a long ways journey
You reach Mount Doom
A gold ring rests in your palm
Only that it's not all-powerful
It just resembles a thought
You kept for far too long
Samwise Gamgee yells at you, "Throw it in the fire! What are you waiting for?"

Perhaps the thought was about someone your age
Maybe a bully kept teasing you and everyone laughed
Perhaps someone made a club that only you couldn't join
Or your best friend told you secret

Perhaps the thought was about an adult
Maybe a teacher gave you detention for no apparent reason
Perhaps a stranger tried to hurt you
Or you got grounded for something you didn't do

Perhaps the thought was about something you did
Maybe you told a lie to get out of a chore
Perhaps you stole something because you didn't want to pay for it
Or you cheated on a test

Whatever the thought
It's over
Whoever did wrong served the consequences
So listen to Samwise Gamgee
Throw the ring in the fire
And be free
