Sometimes when I want to write or paint,
In front of my canvas or paper, everything faints,
Overwhelmed by it, I don't know what to do,
And stricken by all these odd feelings,I just cry
Maybe having artists' block? I panic but I start to think,
Is like having a writers' block, that sends my soul to its very brink.
I love to write and paint, because, it truly makes me happy,
That's all that I care for, if I didn't do it, it would make me unhappy
Since I am very young I've been doing all these things, often every single day,
I can never stop and to tell you the truth, I don't really, ever, want too.
I will go on with my life just doing what I love most, like I still do to this day,
I am getting inspired by so many people living today and those who lived before me
Sometimes when I need to paint or just to write,
I relax my mind,and inspiration then, comes sparkling like a light.
