"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong" - Joseph Chilton Pearce

He sits there
With his guitar in hand
And the guitar pick in the other
He sits there
Playing his life story
Strumming each and every word
He sits there
The moment he can finally stop-
Stop all the pain
He sits there
Head hanging-
Hanging low
Dreads in his face
Tears coming down his cheeks
He sits there
His story
Finally told.

As I took a walk through my public library,there was a painting on the wall of a man with long locks. His eyes followed me as I walked by.This is the story he had in his eyes.
