An artist,

Bleeding his heart into the canvas

Carefully planning his masterpiece

Dutifully paying attention to every detail.

Emotionally drained,

Forced to finish his work

Grueling over an uninviting crowd

Helpless to the impending backlash

Inspired, the artist continues

Just to prove his critics wrong

Knowing that his work will be amazing

Loving himself even more

Meticulously painting his beautiful image

Never letting stamina get to him

Opening his mind to a grand illusion

Presented to him by an transcendent figure

Questioning if what he saw was true

Reveling in the moment of it all

Slowly, the artist comes to a finish

Trapping the moment inside of his easel

Unveiling to the crowd was his final test

Vociferously, he explained his masterpiece

When all of a sudden, the artist begins to run

Xenophobia had stricken him

You now know why most artists are obscure.

Zealous fans always ruin everything.
