Chase art choose love

| Roses are red
Violets are blue
I will collect these pieces of me you have left scattered
You’re shortcomings I see and will make do

Roses are red
Violets are blue
The glass ceiling has shattered
I can finally feel my body break through |

As I wrote this I couldn’t help but think about how so many of us are set up for a future filled with doubt, anxiety, wounds that will take years to heal, pain that may never go away, hearts that are battered, and to all that I just have to say.. May we learn how to turn all of those things into beautiful art. That art can be on a white canvas, a 8.5 by 11 of lined paper, the wooded area in your back yard, the great blue ocean as you sail away to your dreams, a living human in your chair that just needs a better hair day, the baby in your arms that is soundly sleeping, the grandpa in the hospital bed that has no family to comfort him.. Look around art is everywhere, you just have to be willing to see it.
