CONFIDENCE (An Abstract Theory)

I Write My Face
Upon My Age
In Lines
Of Poetry -

I Right My Wrongs
Up On The Stage
For All The World
To See.

What beautiful poem...so elegantly expressed and the painting reminds me of Kandinsky. Living with Lupus is a constant balancing act that is often recorded on our faces and in our eyes. Peace be with you, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
