What do we need to create art?
Be intelligent, clever, smart?
With imagination in mind?
Be unique, one of a kind?

What do we need to create?
Be born with a special fate?
Share talent with the world
Like winning the Olympics Gold?

What do we really need?
Follow others or lead?
Be content or confused
In the millennium’s fuse?

What do we or who are we?
How ourselves we see?
Generous, loyal and kind
That can be rare to find?

Who we are is what we do.
Our actions – sincere, true.
They speak louder than words –
To success straightforward roads.

Let’s create like art our life.
In its happiness we dive.
Much optimism and courage
We retain in life’s storage.
