How True

A true artist creates a work of art
Not to have it hang in a museum
Touted as a masterpiece
But because self-expression
Is like oxygen.

A true musician crafts a song
Not to have it on the radio
Applauded as a hit
But because music projects
From the depths of one’s soul.

A true warrior battles the enemy
Not to etch his name in history
Remembered as a hero
But because fighting to defend honor
Is the only path he knows.

A true partner cherishes a lover
Not to have it returned
A favor for a favor
But because the adoration
Fills every fiber of their being.
