I am an artist and a poet.
I wonder why poetry flies off your paper.
I hear poems that smell like roses in the evening.
I see the drawings of nature spirit.
I want to see an artist create a masterpiece.
I am a person that sees more than just a person itself.
I pretend there is no global warming.
I feel the anger of people that are not heard.
I touch the hearts of my enemies.
I worry that my children won't live where there is no water.
I cry at human cruelty to the earth.
I am fighting for a better world.
I understand my life is short.
I say, ”Live your life to the fullest.”
I dream of a better tomorrow.
I try to touch the skies.
I hope I will never let go.
