Artistic Dialectic

What if making a gift was not enough?
Is creating for its own sake worth it?
Is my brainchild doomed to be worthless stuff?
If there is no point, maybe I should just quit.

Art does not exist in a vacuum,
Although it may be hidden in a drawer,
So while crafting your vision in your room,
Do not focus on who the gift is for.

One must prepare to weather any storm.
Do not be discouraged if your work sucked.
All work evolves into its final form.
Creating is more than the end product.

If your efforts seem ignored, despair not!
Begin again, and give it all you’ve got!
