As a poet, I always find myself searching for inspiration and a way to turn life's pain into passion. I usually find my inspiration for writing from something that is flowing from my life, but sometimes it is beneficial to take the time to admire the art that is being displayed around you too. After my daily scroll through Instagram, I came across an artist whose art pulled me in and demanded my attention. @patriciasparksart art speaks to the soul and it invites you to examine the art in a way that pushes you to create your own art. This is a perfect example of Art inspiring Art. After reaching out to Patricia I received her permission to create a poem for the piece that you see above. The following poem is my tribute to her work. I hope you enjoy it. Please follow her on Instagram and you too will be inspired to create your own art.
"Seek the art within and display in for the world to see it and marvel over it."
Encryption and your access in denied
My life is shut tightly while my pain leaks from inside
My mystery I can no longer hide
Blisters transforming into the reasons why I cry
Bloodshed and bloodshot eyes
painted unto my canvas
Colors brought to life while my brothers die
Encrypted as my tongue is taught to lie
about the truth that I must face before the day I die...
