I am an Artist
I am an artist
And I have no time to be silent
no time to allow these words
to asphyxiate my ancestry
amidst this violence
can’t deny the world my gift
because of fear.
Living a life of purpose and service
I will not die with my gifts still in here
Inspired by my pain
and how close death came
images of a tombstone
Inscribed with my name
and just then, i snapped back
to a new era - a new lane
and then my real eye realized
that i could be the one to make a change
I … am an artist
creator of lyrical calligraphy
take you on a journey with my soliloquies
full of healing
may my words add meaning to your life
and the feelings you left behind
with the things that i write
may my words penetrate your soul
Levitating your being
beyond the thoughts you think you know
Because ignoring the call of our dreams can be lethal
Especially when you tell your BIG dreams
to small minded people
Pumping in the depths of me is my heartistry
this life giving gift that i was given
how can i deny the world the gift of the creators imprint?
How dare i suppress the talents etched in the flesh of my chest?
Am i not grateful?
Do i not cherish it?
Randell, have you not realized
that this is your ticket to the exodus?
When chasing our dreams we sometimes ask if its worth it
but have we not realized that not doing it will cause the world a disservice?
A failure to fulfill our purpose .
I am an artist
persistently pushing pens and pencils
living in my purpose
practicing my pure potential
We as artists must get creating
when the world is devastated
we are the beacons of hope
healing to suicide notes
we change people’s lives with this gift
so no matter how rough it gets, don’t quit!
Know you can push beyond the limits
You are an image of the infinite
you are magnificent creation
every choice we make filled our life’s pages
the road ahead will be tough but remain patient
know that you are designing magic in the making
so, when the blueprint of your story is read,
will it free the world from the matrix?
