Portrait of the Artist

A gallery of thought is on display
And so I wander gently through the room
I stop to pause considering this man
Who hangs his happiness beside his gloom
Courageous how his weakness represents
A theme suffusing every single piece
So frail a life he lived and yet so strong
For hope is in his detail and relief 
The man is so familiar then I see
A portrait of the artist that is me
