Art Is Eternal



***
don't celebrate me,

celebrate my work

for i could never be as beautiful or important
as the designs that come through me
as the gift that God has given to me

and of these works of art, these peerless creations
i play second fiddle, i am but an ugly duckling

yet, if I am to have one distinction
think of me only as the trusted guardian of sacred treasures
and while it's true that i am but a mere mortal
my love, my art, my work...is eternal
and they shall live forever.
