Starving Artists

Free women in art gallery

Mom said artists starve

Don’t dream for the stars

I thought that artist

Meant physical art

Portraits and paintings

Pottery making

But art’s a feeling

No mind how fleeting

Art’s an emotion

Set hearts in motion

Art’s inspiration

Calls for ovation

A poem in prose

Inspiration throughs

Songs sung spurring spirit

You’ll love or fear it

So, I sit, typing

Write for your liking

I’m not yet starving

But close to starting

This life’s not perfect

But art is worth it.
