True Art


Whose paintings convey the truth?
Artists prejudging from a narrow point of view
Or is Art more encompassing than prejudice of the eye?
As I wander from frame to frame and ponder upon the:
Hearts of oils, acrylic, charcoals, fine pencils, marbles and bronzes

What if a frozen tongue can speak freely to me on one- to- one basis?
Away from daily artificial light or switched on nightly shadows
What truth would it convey?
What tales of misgivings would it unleash?
When true art freed from a jailed dream!

Stereotypes gel young and old hearts alike
No matter the quantity of knowledge caught inside a person's net
History has plenty evidence supporting biased views
Permission to dominate and subjugate is no excuse
Why thorns prick hands of ignorance!

Any colour by other means
Might seem bright and sunny beyond our ease
But deep within lurk greying hearts
Dying from irregular palpitation quotations
We ought to discern right from wrong
Greater than the veil of stereotypes

Next time when minds travel the highways of life
And old thoughts stare at souls that seem bare at first
Even desserts bloom beyond the eyes of spring
Where life seems remote out of reach from reigning hands
Slam the breaks and vacate this road travelled on
Rest stops are meant to stop, revive, survive and strive

Be forewarn about blanket ideas that pave the next stagnant road
Tables will turn and master becomes the arrogant little toad!
