Artist

Artist-by Michelle Artiaga

Dancer, let your spirit fly,
Dancer, touch the sky.
Let your love float through your fingertips,
Let your dreams shine in your eyes.
Dance, Dance til your free as the wind,
Break the chains that bind you on the ground.
You're a dove, pure as the driven snow,
Let it show, let it flow, to help them grow.
Singer,Let your voice resound.
Singer, proclaim out loud,
That the song so deep inside your soul,
Will touch a heart and make it whole
Sing,Sing. til your free as the wind,
Break the chains that bind you on the ground.
You're a dove, pure as the driven snow,
Let it show, let it flow, to help them grow.
Actor, step outside yourself,
Actor,become a tree.
May your branches give fruit to the hungry ones,
nourish them, set them free.
Act, Act until youre free as the wind,
Break the chains that bind them on the ground.
You're a dove, pure as the driven snow,
Let it show, let it flow, to help them grow.
Artist, Take a selfish world,
And create a work of art.
May your images and color enlighten those,
Who stand alone, in the dark
Paint, Paint, til your free as the wind,
Break the chains that bind you on the ground.
You're a dove, pure as the driven snow,
Let it show, let it flow, to help them grow

Congratulations on such a studious and maticulous peace of work. Old poets never die, they just tend to more loving desireS' else where. Remember, the business of life began with an universality and a idea! Keeep the write-up, Up! Your friend in the pen/G.FIELDS
