The Artist In Me


it is not the skills that made my fingers sway and dance
nor is it my eyes, made to admire beauty at every glance

artist “KUNO” as i may be from the looks of your eyes
but you never read my thoughts nor fill my heart’s sighs

my mind creates the vision of my world where i belong
a comfort zone for my heart and soul that i live along

each day i live to enjoy the colors upon the rainbow’s end
pains i leave behind and walk with heartaches to mend

i am…the artist in me, is the spirit that made me strong
i am and i will be…the choice i know i will not be wrong

i don’t compete with you nor to anyone else but me
why won’t you just let me the way that i want it to be

i am an artist…unearth the world beneath and beyond
share the wonders of the unknown only few understand

artist “kuno” the devotion of my passion and dream
that brought me into the greatness of my self-esteem

i will live to breathe forever in a life of …the artist in me
one day soon i will show my worth for you and all to see

word use;
“kuno” — “supposedly”
