Every artist's explanatory note

Every artist's explanatory note
By Gerlie M. Uy

My friends, never think that I am rude,
that I prefer a world of my own;
it is just that when I am alone
Creativity appears before me.

Never think that I am lazy,
that I rather stare on blank surfaces;
it is just that in this moment of want,
any emptiness is starting to be filled in.

Never think that my muscles are worthless
that I rather bring home a landscape,
a poem or a thousand folded papers,
it is just that each piece offers to erase your day's burnout.

Never think otherwise. It is no secret
that your work is as great as mine:
you bring food to the table
and I bring food for the soul.
