The World


The world will wait for its chance to laugh
but I say fear not friend, stand up, dance
the world will judge, and even be snide
and I say fear not, for we are most alive

The world will say pursuit of art ends in failure
but we continue to see the beauty behind every picture
The world will try to take away our reason to prance
and we answer by making its fields our place of dance

The world will tell us don't pursue the stage
but we must pour our essence onto every page
'The world' to each of us is someone different
and to be our own artists, we must not listen!
