Mona Lisa - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Her soul stitched to her garment with a paintbrush
Arousing her heart to dream
Ready to shout with joy
Celebrating the life full of butterflies
Genuinely believing that she is alive
Born out of a brush and paint
Conceived in the bowels of a dreamer's mind

Her expressions staring out on an empty space
Reflecting and reminiscing about life
'Is life worth all the trouble? ' she asked
Mesmerized by the thought of breathing
the thought of love

    AS An Artist I think its a portrait created by an artist yet it also has more meaning in it

    powerful and powerful yes it is powerful indeed
    love it
