Why You Should Never Stop Being an Artist

Why You Should Never Stop Being an Artist by Sarba Roy

Eventually,
As life goes on,
A lot of terrific artists stop creating art,
Life takes a toll on them,
How can you write a poem,
Or create a piece of music,
When you have a presentation to make,
Or a sick child by your side,
Or you simply are tired with the race,
And the drama of life.
But you know what,
The only way to stay truly alive,
In this depressing world,
Is to do things once in a while,
That liberate you,
From the self-imposed prisons,
Of society, situations and your own mind.
Never stop creating art,
No matter what.
A life filled with art and adventure will eventually,
Set you free,
A juicy creative life,
Will become your precious legacy,
It will inspire starry-eyed teenagers,
And hopeless adults alike,
To invest themselves,
In the pursuit of art,
In the things that make them feel alive,
Above all,
A life filled with art,
Will be your best birthday present,
You would gift yourself,
On your eightieth birthday.
So, don’t give up on yourself,
Or your art,
Not yet,
Not just yet.
