The Ungovernable

You make your lists and action-plans,
In order to rule your wild heart.

Your ungovernable spirit, you seek to conquer;
Through timetables and deadlines,
Your ‘must-do’s and schedules.

If She is controlled, You have won.

You seek to govern the ungovernable, my girl – give it up…
For if She is conquered, she is quelled.

If She is controlled, You have won.

But don’t you see? :
If you’ve won, she has died.
If She is dead, so are You.

Artist's Description

The battle of the artist against the pragmatist, within…the need to survive against the need to create.
survival alone = existence & cannot be called ‘life’. Yet one does not live on art alone…
An internal plea to self…
