So many times, I have been told that art comes from a talent within that is a blessing, yes it indeed is a blessing but does the blessing have to be used for money or could it be used for comfort? I don’t know, I struggle every day with this idea, because how much is much to provide to others and are my poems providing the comfort that I would’ve wanted to have back then when I was alone, scared, and afraid. That inner child calls me sometimes and I comfort her, that child is big now, she has grown to be so much more than it was ever imagined. How much can I provide from her and from the here and right now, how much art could be enough and how much could be too little. I’ve often asked myself how much we need to sacrifice to live in peace and if we do live in peace, how long will it last, that made me input my total faith in God.
