Art is the weapon

Art is the weapon
but it is not an object
it is not a canvas, a paintbrush, a photograph
it is an idea, a dream, a release,
a catharsis for our versatile sanity

Art is the weapon
but it is not destruction
it is not a bomb, a gun, a war cry
it is creation, explosion, excitement,
an escape from the suffocation of our humanity

Art is the weapon
but it is not infinite
it is not certain, defined, enclosed
it is fragile, desperate, beautiful,
and making art, we are alive.

I needed to write this today, it seemed appropriate.
The sun is (well, was, it's dark now..) shining, it's nearly summer, only 2 months of school left. I'm happy. :3
