natural art

blood is not paint
sharp edges are not a paintbrush
art is not defiling your body
with scars and bruises
it is not as beautiful as you think
there are other things more exquisite

take the sun
setting over the ocean
melting its rays into the
churning water
or a mountain silhouetted
against a pink and purple sky
as if it is not a natural creation
or a painting made of watercolor
capturing a woman mourning
the loss of her home

art can be painful
but art is not created
at the expense of physical pain
you do not shed blood
to become more beautiful

you are beautiful
you are art
in its most natural form
