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
