Chris Rea - My Inspiration

Post by tanieltuscon » 27 Jul 2012, 17:05

I go by the name Taniel Tuscon as an author of three poetry books. However, my real name is Liza Cilliers. I am 53 years old and live in Cape Town South Africa. I have two children aged 21 and 19. My brother introduced me to Chris Rea's music in 1982, and I have been a fan ever since. Three months ago I watched an interview on his Santo Spirito album, which inspired me to write poetry of true life events. All three books are dedicated to him, and three of the poems are directly about him.

Thank you for the request, and I apologize for my late reply. This poem is the first poem I wrote, and it is included in my first book called "True Life Poems To Stir Your Heart"

Creativity

Inspiration came in a way she did not expect
From someone she is in awe of and respects
For his courage and endurance
In a situation no human
Should have to embrace
People say he has great talent
It is not talent only creativity
Next he said something she found so inspiring
We all possess this creativity
Whatever it may be
She watches him strum his guitar
And in her opinion
He is the greatest of all stars
She watches him play
With the wish that she could do the same
Then it occurred to her
That her creativity
Lies somewhere in her head
Not in her fingers
Cause five of them are dead
Guitars she cannot strum
Songs she cannot sing
So what could be done
To find her creativity
Her mind was racing
Then one morning with no warning
The words came tumbling
So pen and paper she found
Cause there was no stopping
And it occurred to her
Her star of all time was right
When he said we all have creativity
That is no maybe
Maybe she knew it all along
Just never took it seriously
Till he the one she is in such awe of
Facing so much adversity
Inspired her to put pen to paper
And now very much later
She finds it everywhere and in everything
This thing called creativity
And it makes her heart sing

Dedicated to my all-time favorite music artist Chris Rea

Thank you kindly

Liza

I made a mistake to say that this poem is from my first book. It is from the second book called " For Your Heart and For Your Soul"

Thank You
Liza
