An Artist of Yesterday

Regina Puckett

I’m one step closer

But still too far away

A poor composer,

An artist of yesterday

If only time would stand

Still for a brief moment or two

I would lightly brush my hand

And paint the sky a lighter blue

I would twirl and erase away

Poverty, crime and heartbreak

The world colored as a brighter day

All of that I would do for your sake
