I Exist

I Exist

A Poem by paradoxical
"

Well that's my belief, anyways.

"

Music. Art. Photography.
Sculpture. Literature...
All these different ways
we have invented
to express ourselves.
We dig in and grab handfuls
of that seething mess
that crawls around inside,
and we smear it out onto
the pages, the walls, the air.
Struggling to make the outside
match the inside.

All of it telling something different,
all of it screaming the same thing;
Look at me. I'm here.
Acknowledge my
existence.

Wow! what a beautiful poem and so so acurate. Isn't that what we are all doing here? shouting from the rooftops - look what I can do! i can't find fault with this poem, loved it, especially the image of smearing our talents across the walls. Brilliant!

Brilliant. This is so elegant in describing what we're doing as artists, it's like remembering something we never knew.
"Struggling to make the outside
match the inside."
I applaud you.
