Complete Yourself


The empty canvas stares, mocking her

fears meant to be poured out as vibrant splatters.

Beastly secrets seething in the artist’s soul gather,

pounding on the doors of Hell, summoning to be released.

Into a dream of fairy tales and lovers’ sacred decree.


The artist must choose, a life of murder or letting go.

Release the demons within, and row

the boat in a river of untouched goals.

She escapes to become one with God, her savior truly.

Takes off like a bird, and revels in the world’s trivial beauties.


Travel this game of life one place at a time,

Roll the dice and see where you go,

like a drop of rain before the rainbow.

Expand the bounds of your horizons, illuminate them with pastel.

Go conquer your fears, and complete yourself.

  1. My interpretation of this writing is that the person is in a state of contemplation and confusion. She is at a stage where she is looking at herself through the eyes of others and perhaps the self-doubt that is betraying her. Perhaps it is her past that is haunting her. All she needs to do is either to accept herself for who she is or succumb to her demons.

    I don’t know if my interpretative skills are right but I love this writing! Much love. 🙂

    1. Wow, impressive analysis! You’ve got it down 🙂 The struggle of letting her fears of what others think and the fright of letting go of her past bothers her most. She feels empty because of her state of being stuck from others undermining her. With the analogy, she must complete the drawing herself on a canvas, which represents her finding her identity and loving herself wholly. Thanks for the comment! Going to check out your blog now.
