I will not live the life of a socialite.
My hands are not long and elite.
My body is not firm and petite.
.
I will not live the life of a housewife.
I am too restless for the nerve.
I am too selfish to serve.
.
I will not live the life of a critic.
My soul nurtures the young,
Heart, hand and tongue.
.
I will not live the life of a judge.
I see beauty and fault in all.
To make a choice is God’s call.
.
I will not live the life of a hermit.
As cleansing as it is to be alone,
With family and friends my heart finds its home.
.
I will not live the life of a whiner.
There is so much more to give.
An artist is the life in which I will live.
