Art For the Broken

 

“Art is to console those who are broken by life”
— Vincent van Gogh

 

Lady Art has replaced Lady Liberty. These days nobody is quite sure just who ol Liberty will take but Lady Art still takes them all.
The Broken ones who show their scars
and the ones who try to hide them.
The writer seeks words to convey
the heartbreak for which he should be joyful
The artist tries to find the line
the colour that recalls last night
and he can’t quite.
The singer has the words but not the tune
yet the notes come one by one.
Lady Art is crueler in her way than Liberty. Liberty just holds you responsible.
With Art you need give a good accounting.
— G A Rosenberg

Striving

 

“This is what it is to be human: to see the essential existential futility of all action, all striving — and to act, to strive. This is what it is to be human: to reach forever beyond your grasp. This is what it is to be human: to live forever or die trying. This is what it is to be human: to perpetually ask the unanswerable questions, in the hope that the asking of them will somehow hasten the day when they will be answered. This is what it is to be human: to strive in the face of the certainty of failure. This is what it is to be human: to persist.”
― Spider Robinson

 

Thrown down to the bottom
again and again
yet still I pull myself up
and start to crawl
to walk to climb to soar
until the crash comes
I persist through it all
and will continue
to do less would mean to
deny my being
I may never find the end of my quest
but that has never mattered
and matters less the further I go
— G A Rosenberg
