A Worthy Sacrifice

We pour our heart 
Into our creation
To get trampled, criticized
Rejected
Breaking our spirit

To not pour our heart
Perhaps protects our underpinning -- 
By not bearing the creator's image
By not carrying the creator's soul
The creation suffers

To not push hard enough
To not dig deep enough
Creates a counterfeit,
Second-rate beauty
Unworthy

Create.
Unguarded.
