I am...heartache with pursed lips in the shape of a smile...
I am... illusionist, willing to show nothing but joy...
I am...motivated to prove naysayers wrong with my sound
Mouth an arrow
Words a bow.
I am...deep ocean
Each grain of salt a brand new seed...
A new idea
Waiting to be planted and watered
I am...determination to get past the sting of salt in my battle wounds
This shore will no longer be barren because that's not the way I see life
I see future
I am future
I am...willing to support someone's future
I am...open arms
A lending hand
I am charity
I am caged bird
I am free spirit, aching to set those burning thoughts loose
I am...forward thinking
My posterity includes more than just my blood
Our posterity includes more than just our blood
Jack of all trades
Master of none
Skillful enough to prove myself
But not enough to make a living...
I am...mourner for all things beautiful
There is hardly a thing I can't call beautiful
I mourn for every piece of life
Both living and nonliving
It is all alive
The dull rocks are alive with beauty and adventure
The grey skies are alive with fear and excitement and storm
The artwork is alive in animation
The artist is alive in memory
And when they are gone, there will be a drought of inspiration
Nothing new will bloom
I am ...writer
Finding solace deep into the pages
