Art for me,

Is not just

A passion

But a compulsion

Not only how I see

But a reflection of me.

When the sun makes a shadow

When the earth grows a tree

I can too. It empowers me.

It’s not just what I see

But a reflection of me

My way to see



Why create? Why do art?

To see. To try.

Rethink. Refocus.

Modify status.

Manipulate surplus.

Rediscover purpose.

Change from contrary

To extraordinary

Making is a testament

That we’re human

We can.

Sometimes not intentionally

Often accidentally

Make old new

And new old, too

And all because

That’s what artists do.
