I Am An Artist (Poem)

My brush the pen
My canvas the paper
My paint the ink
And my words the picture

With every stroke of my pen
With every crossing of the T
With every dot of the I
It’s becoming more like me

My picture comes alive
My picture touches your soul
My picture captures your mind
And takes form as you troll

My motivation is love
My motivation your encouragement
My motivation is my heart
And your betterment

You’re welcome to look
You’re welcome to read
You’re welcome to ponder
And take it with you as you leave

My picture my heart meant only for thee.

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
