Why We Create

The starving artist
delicately swipes
the horse hair brush
with quick precision
to fill an empty stomach.

Similar to, the
homeless musician
singing through the strings
of his electric guitar
to fill the hole in the heart.

Or, how the lonely poet
writes of fonder memories
to fill the void in her chest.

And, why the architect
blueprints a vision
to fill the empty gaps
in the visionaries eyes.

We are all creators
Producing love
to fill the emptiness
in our lives.

So, we must create
to know we’re alive
it is our passion
our gift divine.
