Ria's poem was published on ILA Magazine, Issue # 4 of August/September Edition, yet, thought to re-post/publish on Blog, if you missed reading in within Issue # 4's content, please take the time to read it, here. I am an artist though sometimes I think I'm not! My life is a canvas, the color comes from my heart. My words create lines sometimes rhymes. What I paint unto my life begins with me. My creations are clear evidence that I am sometimes great but mostly I have made mistakes. I scattered colors yet dull and plain but silence speaks whenever in blank ink. I am an artist of my own life. I hold the paint brush, I create with my heart. I am the masterpiece of my own creation.
