art
you wanna make
frickin art
there's suffering all around
mourning surrounds
and all you want 
is something beautiful
to write about
art 
won't help finish
your math homework
art won't help 
solve world hunger
your keyboard won't 
print out bills
what we need really 
are real world skills

art?
trying to pick out roses
on a bed of nails
art?
an escape from
finding your purpose 
when everything else fails
art?
being on stage
when the ground 
around you
is burning 
with rage
art?
think about
how self absorbed 
you are
your breakups
your friends
your loving parents
who don't have issues
your privilege 
which comes with
occasional blues
your dark thoughts
your ideas
your imagined world
your self discovery

art? 
where do I sign up
where does it start
I'm just lonely
and can't get a therapist
like other 
functioning humans
so let me splatter some paint
splatter some letters
to escape
and not attempt
to solve
real-world
problems
in me
and everywhere else

    I can relate to this sentiment. Maybe art can't feed kids halfway around the world, but it can spark a fire in us. It can inspire to take action. And I think art is therapy in a way. It's a way to escape for a little while and cheer us up.
