A Heart of Art

How best to describe art than use art itself; a scream of freedom – liberation of self

It pulls down the mightiest of egos; gives liberty, of skies to scale like eagles

Art eliminates the unlovely inner critics; brings out the ultimate classic

A source of physical dimes; a well of spiritual chimes

Art moves the toughest of hearts; gives tranquility to those that are hurt

From deep within, it evokes an emotion; to the hearts so tender, it is a love potion

How dull the world would be; without art, can’t you see

‘Earth’ would be nothing but ‘eh’; clouds would be nothing but grey

Let empty be your mind; embrace art, be entwined

Creativity takes courage; let art replace your demurrage
