THE ARTIST by Ria Flores

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.
