This poem came to life after listening to a webinar about how, many artists are inspired by their own struggle to get noticed.


In the deep impenetrable silence, where all creativity begins

A thought bursts forth an expression, as energy surges and spins 

Lying in wait for the moment, like lava that erupts from the ground 

Painting and sculpting the landscape, from nothing to dust, life is found

The artist is fuelled by such moments, where struggle is grist for the mill

Striving to follow the pathway that leads, to the top of the hill 

With vantage the view is astounding, at what can so earnestly be shared

So others can feel in that moment, the emotional journey past fared
