Art and Life

Art is better than life
It is generous, it is rife
It is not eternal strife
Art is better than life

Art is a kind of escape
That covers you with silk drape
And has a lovely shape
Art is a kind of escape

Art is not merely life`s substitution
It is the only solution
For our confusion and disillusion
Art is not merely life`s substitution

Art is more than life`s imitation
It is our inspiration
And salvation
Art is more than life`s imitation

    You propounded a new and powerful theory unknown to some people, with sweet rhymes.... Before art is life, now art is better than life, I agree with you, because without art, there will be no life at all....... Thanks for sharing!
