Shakespeare wrote of undying love,
Mozart dictated to from high above,
Michelangelo’s punishment was the Sistine pride,
Van Gogh was tortured deep inside.

The world’s masters all had a common thread,
as creative thoughts ran through their head.

What felt like demons at the start,
transformed their visions into great art.

If we could ask them now they’d say,
that though they resisted along the way,
the final and Most Important Part,
is when they Surrendered To Their Heart.
