a need

Something that all look at, but precious few see

is the one thing that all men need.

To capture the beauty of the sky or the sea

 to find ways to express the world on which the soul feeds.


Something you did that will last against fate 

this one true desire.

But with so little time, is it always too late?

Will our legacies and lives live through the fire?


To paint a moment, to write a world

To compose a feeling in small mighty words.

Today is never too late

to fulifill the need, the desire

to create.
