about riches – mostly within.
He paints pictures as a side hustle,
with tender loving brush strokes.
Open-minded folk love his stories;
tales too painful to comprehend.
He uses his artwork as a softening touch
to mirror unacceptable truth.
They are amazed at his art -- except for some,
who won’t understand. So, they ridicule him and
abuse him. They make him unwelcome,
wherever he goes. So, he moves.
He carries messages of wisdom and love –
as a gentle word turns away wrath.
He travels under the radar scorning death,
speaking unpalatable truth. And, he moves.
