freestyle sonnet #028: THE LIFE OF HAVE-NOT

A "greatest living artist" no longer aware
that art lives in every heart, just most folks lack
space in life to indulge self exploration; fair
and unfair are external judgments applied - black

or white #facts don't exist in the wild; nature's grey
as fuck, and despite "his" *own* beliefs otherwise,
man's still part of nature, although haters say "nay",
stay hating, but give it a confidence disguise,

claiming free, claiming higher plane, claiming einstein
of current timeline - but whatever; real as fuck
artists remain surviving this corrupt-by-design
system through their art, lost behind digital muck,

unknown, unseen, unsupported nor reported -
but true artistic mission's never aborted.
