Ways of the Cross

Window Pane Acid Trip


It is forever my downfall
But if an artist
is not proud
Isn't that a greater sin?

I have never been greedy
Selfish from time to time
I am not neat
but certainly not slothful.

I lust in my heart
and envy the work of masters
but I harbor no wrath
and only eat to excess randomly.

But pride
in what I can accomplish
with the emotions I can bestir
with image and word.

Yes, pride is my sin.
Of that I readily confess.
It is my cross
To bear.

  1. We're human after all. We need to know when good enough is good enough. Nicely done. I like this. Thank you! ;-)


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
