I wrote this when I was Basic Training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, for my first enlistment in 1995.
This is just me thinking of how scary it can be to put your heart & soul, so much of yourself, into your artwork to then send it out into the world for others to see, ignore, like, hate, etc.

I wrote this poem for my remarks at my retirement ceremony. The photograph is my own work. I hope you like it!
