Envy you the artists and their chosen canvasses
The writer poised at desk with quill in hand
The painter poised over palettes of mixed oils
The composer with liqid-flowing baton in hand
The photographer with viewfinder pressed to light
Politician, diarist, singer, and architect
Cook, stylist, surgeon, and businessman
Not for their gifts, not to envy them those skills
But for the simple fact that anyone who creates
Anyone who makes, anyone who crafts, anyone at all
Has made their mark upon our world, enduring
And will live larger-than-life, forever, eternal
So long as even a single creation remains
