To live and breathe unattached
Is most beautiful
To let the words flow and go.
Create art from the heart and soul without Expectation of
To dance without expectations of applause.
To release all the power contained within this Vessel
Leaves room to flow and feel the euphoria
Of life energy;
To let it come
And let it go.
Love and love some more.
Listen and listen some more.
The more released the more
Realized and the veil
Comprehension now your choice.
Art answers to no one.
It is untold;
Natural when we release all
That have taken root
Just like love.
Once a week in elementary school
The art teacher
Would bring her cart into the classroom.
On a particular art lesson
She painted an example of a clown
Reds and whites and blues.
In turn we were told to paint our own.
I sat and stared at my paint and paper
While the other kids started.
I was always so unsure of myself, overthinking.
I looked around at my classmates
They were all copying the art teachers example.
I remember thinking it was strange,
All the same.
So i proceeded to paint
Black, blue and gray,
A frowning clown with a dead flower in
( looking back now, I laugh))
Mine clashed with the rest.
And they were all placed on display in the hallway all bright, except one looking quite out of sorts.
A sad sorry clown surrounded
Bright and happy ones.
The school contacted my parents and
Thought perhaps they should seek counseling for me.
