Is all good art about happiness,
Light and beauty?
Is it about being positive,
And selling a message?
Well, yes and no.
It should, in the end,
Reveal some kind of truth,
But, as human beings,
All we have to do
Is live our lives,
And we reveal truth.
It is built into creation.
It is a building block
Of all life.
Creation is just a creative thing.
Life is truth.
So, just create, feel absolutely free
To go wherever your spirit leads you.
You can’t help but create something
That has some redeeming quality.
How entertaining, successful,
Or profitable it turns out to be,
Is another story.
But don’t worry about that.
Just use the gifts God gives you,
No matter how big or small,
And God will use you, somehow,
Even if it is just to teach you something
About yourself, or someone close to you,
Or, perhaps, something important to you,
Like your life, or your art.
Life is a learning process,
And so is creativity.
They are inseparable from each other.
So, do your thing,
Whatever it is,
And don’t think about the results,
Just think about life.
We can all relate to that.
