Art, Period.

Every time I walk into an art museum,
my heart takes a fall for the worst. Or the best.
Because seeing those crazy polygons
Makes it leap right out of my chest.
 
Or...Or when I see those magnificent colors blend
My life is sent to Heaven, then comes back again!
A flutter in my stomach at Japanese Calligraphy.
And a sight at "Starry Night" just makes me feel so free.
 
And I can't get enough of music
That's an Art you can NEVER control
Because the thumping beat of techno
Brings nothing but happiness to my soul.
 
A mellow classic symphony 
Is enough to calm me down
And hip-hop ... Poetry with a beat?!
Nothings better than that sound.
 
When I see prancing ballerinas
My eyes enlarge around 12x more.
And I love the feeling my feet get when
They run over to the dance floor.
 
Boy! Do my hands get shaky
As I read books of the unimaginable!
And when ideas overflow me as I write poetry ....
Well, the thrill is incomprehensible!
 
There are so many more things
Like when I hear someone sing,
My mind just wants to ... take FLIGHT!
And even we people are such a creation,
No one should want to miss THAT sight!
 
All the different types of makeup, hairstyles, clothing, bags
Man....It just never ENDS!
All the origami, architecture, sculptures
I SWEAR, IT'S TOO MUCH TO COMPREHEND!!!
 
And if you think that art is worthless,
You may want to think again.
Because if you do, you'll miss out on a world
Of beauty, outside and within.
 
So if someone says art is stupid,
Don't be scared to say, "You're just delirious."
Because nothing, and I mean NOTHING,
will ever be better than ART, period.
This poem is about: 
Our world
