Artist's Oath

Artist's Oath

A Poem by MightyMouse

I am an artist.

I’m passionate about my craft.

To bring it to life, I sacrifice food, sleep, and friends.

I endure stares and criticism.

I am my craft and my craft is me.

For I am a dreamer of impossibilities.

Glad to know that you are as passionate about your craft as the rest of us.
However I feel that one need not sacrifice food, sleep and friends to get better at it. In fact, friends can be of great help in giving you a fresh perspective about your work, which you would not have thought of.
Food and sleep are also equally necessary as we all know.
Yes, it is great to know that you endure criticism... We all do, it is required as we can keep improving our craft.
Cheers

This reminds me of a quote that goes: "I write not because I want to, it's because I have to." That can be applied to any artist's passions.

I really liked this. Every line holds a deep and honest truth about all writers, and for all its simplicity the poem tells a deep story.

Thanks. I'm not much of a poet, so its good to hear I'm not awful at it.
I love this. This describes us writers so well, especially this line: "I am my craft and my craft is me."
It's short, but gets right to the point.
Nice job!

Thanks. I don't do a lot of poetry, so when I do, I try to at least make it good. Or at least okay.
