My Life, The Artwork

©

Published: May 2016

Life is a work of art,
something you paint or write with your heart,
taking care to make every part
a symphony of colors or words
that fly together like a flock of birds.

You use the tools that you have,
a paintbrush or a pen in your hand.
Appreciate the hand you use,
because you don't get to choose,
and be careful what you create
using your character trait.

Take a lesson from the other designs,
but still use your creative guidelines.
Don't think your abilities come from your greatness;
they are a gift from God, and they're not utterly painless;
they take endurance and care,
and you have to be able to bear
the wear and tear.

The piece can be one of a kind,
no matter if you have a great mind.
Write and paint of actions undefined,
by the knowledge of others
who are undermined.

Use the love God has given
and the guidance of his hand
to recreate his promised land.

The sands of time
will bring about inspiration
and the gifts of God you use without hesitation.
Life is a work of art,
a reflection of you,
and a journey that you must pursue.

Life is a work of art. Beautifully explained. Sure, all credits should go to the Supreme. Such writings need a lot of expertise.
