Birth of An Artistic Voice


Life’s colors meld and merge
Ice cold memories melt and purge
Stepping inward hours to years
Flood with healing tender tears
Its wasn’t the loyalty or even the crowd
It wasn’t the belief not allowed
It was a message delivered and found
When life tossed me hard upon cruel ground
I felt the soil
I touched the earth
I heard my heart giving birth
Nature rumbled
Past life crumbled
Out of ruin
Out of ash
Dragon snarl stumbled and splash
Little soul of burning choice
Created my new
Artistic voice
