they call me an artist

Post by Black Star Shine » Tue Mar 24, 2009 6:36 pm

They call me an artist
but what do they know...
I bleed my soul onto notebooks
scrape my fingers across frets
slide my heart on canvas
and they still call me an artist
when my poems are nothing but hate
misery and death
when my songs mean nonsense mixed with
pain and suffering
when my paintings and drawing are nothing but
scribbles and slashes
and they still call me an artist
why is what I ask everyday
I cant get in the book
cant get on the stage
cant get the decent score of creativness
and they still...
dare call me an artist...

to write something with this much intensity and raw truth takes talent and skill. you most definitely are an artist. keep it up.

if you do not feel that you are an artist then you are not! some people like to put title on things to make them selfs feel like they understand the world. but the truth is you may just be a person full of hate and anger and confusion who has something real to say, and that's important! you don't have to be considered an artist to be a valid contribution. GHANDI wasn't an artist neither was martin luther king but what they had to say changed the world ! after all they call elephants that play with paintbrushes artists too, do you really wanna fit into that box? just keep writing, singing and painting whatever the hell you want to and call yourself a human with a voice! :whip:
