An open book

my heart has chosen the path of sharing
my soul is on my sleeve
as i am artist
i am also the painting
you may see it as beautiful
or you may see it as trash
every work of art has its critics
i can only hope that one day
my soul work will be seen as a keepsake
not something to throw in your attic
or a garage sale
one that is passed on for generations

like my mothers
