An Artist by Default

You said
you wanted to be a painter
from a young age
Then you gave up on that
after a few attempts
and a reality check

Now
you spit out phrases
to shut off
the squirming words
inside your sore head
You are not sure
if they are just noises
or music notes

As a reader
I see paintings
in a vast array of
pigments and colours
when reading your words

No matter how much
you think you may fail
you are an artist
by default

  1. An artists shouldn’t check reality for that only would break his heart, nor was reality his goal nor pleasing the crowds! An artist simply pleases the art inside his heart! 🙈🌹
