Art is Pointless

Art is pointless by Jasmine Kay Uy

 

Art is pointless | without passion.

You have to go out | and create art

Get an actual job | doing what you love

And make a living | by being yourself.

You can’t just let | other people define

The rest of your life | and say you will

Be a joke, a failure | follow your heart

You will end up | happy and free, not

A starving artist. | Love your art and

Contribute to society | by inspiring people

Instead of wasting time | letting others tell you

You’re worthless | you can change the world.
