I Refrain To Be An Artist

Rating: 5.0
If conflicts is my gate pass
to a masterpiece,
i refrain to be an artist.
I refrain to be sad again
just so I could scribble away
the pain; and blow off
the dark plots I plan.

The applause is loud,
in fact tempting
that maybe someday
I shall revisit?

But it's not in my prayer.

For I have come way back
from the rocky trails
to get it over with,
to shake hands with serenity,

and I refrain to die a sad death
just so I would be remembered.
