ARTISTS


by Shellah Garrett

 

 

Someone must paint the sunsets
So the rest of us can be struck by their awesome beauty.
But who will care for the painter
So she has the courage
To reach out
And touch her brush to the sky?

Someone must make the music
So the rest of us can dance with a joyful abandon.
But who will care for the musician
So he has the strength
To reach out
And seize the rhythm from the air?

Someone must sing the songs
So the rest of us can raise our voices in unison.
But who will care for the singer
So she has the certainty
To reach out
And pour her self on the world?

Someone must write the stories
So the rest of us can travel to far off places.
But who will care for the writer
So he has the space
To reach out
And pen entire universes?
