Everything Fades

Everything fades
The vibrancy of indigo
The pounding of the waves
Even the sun’s rays
EVERYthing fades
The eyes that used to twinkle
At the profoundness of your ways
Now they’re covered by shades
And even the shades aren’t as dark
Don’t hide the contempt
As well as they once did
The look in the iris leaves you wounded

But everything fades
At different rates
So what used to match
No longer goes together
Both of these were blacks
No longer shown together
Maybe its a difference in the stitching
They werent sewn together
Just gave the appearance
Whenever thrown together
Together but seperate,
Alone as ever

Everything fades
Until its a fad and its hot again
Just to be worn out
With that favorite top again
Just to be worn out
Expectations toppling
A toddler’s grin
A dynasty a rivalry
A bottle spin
Stars supernova, a cosmic end
Roses wilt, like a brilliant mind
Into unconsciousness
War leads to anarchy
Leads to unbridled sin
No Bibles then
No vows no morals
Just idle hands
But even idleness
Fades

Selling Your Art

Most Americans have a hobby which borders on art. Whether it’s singing,dancing, writing and performing poetry or even burping. Some people actually try to make a living from these hobbies; and run into a huge problem. What price do you put on your art? If you write songs iTunes would have you believe your work is only worth 99¢ ($1.29 if you’re Justin Beiber.)  If you are a painter maybe you think your work is priceless like Michelangelo but comes out looking more like this.

whatever the case it may be hard for you to ascribe a price to something you have worked so hard to accomplish. I have always been a fan of art setting it’s own price. By finding out how much others are willing to pay for certain items you set reasonable third party expectations. Also you avoid the awkward moment of realizing that your art is not what you thought it was worth by someone refusing to pay such a price.
