The world is your canvas.

Society is your paint brush.

The people are your choice of colours.

What kind of picture would you paint?

How would it differ from the image that is currently on show?

Would you go mad and rid yourself from all forms of restraint?

Just how far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go?

I ask because every portrait I create,

Is inspired by what is already in front of me.

So is it possible to even recreate,  

Anything that the mind is not able to see.

The picture will always be the same

Because this life is all we know.

Where there is compassion there must be pain

Because it us who made it so.

Something I wrote in my blackberry whilst trying to fall asleep last night lol I just got thinking about pictures and paintings and how this world is like a portrait. The question I ask myself is who exactly painted this picture we call life. I guess in this poem I am trying to make everyone think about if you had the chance to recreate the world, how would you make it different?
Is it even possible to make an image a part from the one we currently see? Everything we know and think of has come from somewhere which Is why I do not think it is possible to create a different picture. I hope it makes sense and I hope I am not rambling on a tangent lol Let me know what you think guys :)

I really like this and I feel like it gives people the control in their lives that they seek. I submitted it to my group #Artistic-Therapies, is that okay? The group is about how art impacts life and how art can be used as a coping mechanism or traditional therapy. I'd also love for you to join the group :) [link]

I love the topic you chose-- art is very dear to me. You've also incorporated rhythm and rhyme nicely into this piece.

Beautiful. I think about this sort of thing sometimes, too. It's a hauntingly lovely kind of thought, in my opinion, and you captured it well.

I had to think about what you meant by the last stanza. What is the pain referring to, I thought. After about 10 minutes and relieving myself in the restroom, I came to a conclusion. The pain is not seeing it happen in front of us.

I wouldn't make it different - I can't, I just look at paintings and wonder whether it is even possible...

Is it possible? I don't think so... Or I lack vision...
