Challenges of an Artist

To make something beautiful, to shock and astound
To portray an idea that's truly profound
To take something perfect, to then warp and twist
To create something new that's more layered than schist
To ache from oblivion, to withdraw from life
To emerge once again; that's conquering strife
To break with convention, to worship the bold
To never stop searching, that's always the goal
To fake calm indifference to words of disdain
To believe in yourself when no one remains
