Art ist Me


English: 1st grade student at Soamanandray (on...

Are you?

 

A child asked me if I were an artist and though I’m not the smartest I just grinned and dared not reply
He asked again a short while later his emphasis greater and I could not help but sigh
And answer “I paint, I write, I create, does that count?”

 

He looked up at me from his desk with a visage near burlesque as if to say
Why didn’t you just say so simply and a while ago, why from my question stray
Can you not for yourself account?

 

And seeing I am often oddest at attempting to be modest he simply smiled and said
“Then you’re an artist.” Which is hardest to keep from going to my head
As a child’s vision one cannot discount

    Because-art comes out of heart &soul..if someone loves your art, then they say you,true you, is of so very much value. And we either shy from it, or puff up. Puffing up, wrecks the heart & soul, hence killing the artist, but, we still want to be adored, for our hearts and souls. Or something like that. Lol
