MY LIFE PAINTING

By Truong Tan Thanh

 

 
 

 

 

         i start to draw
        my life painting
           from the darkest colors,
         the colors of
          sufferings and  a seem-to-be-hopelessness

                i had no bright colors
                so
              i just used what i had
                 the scary, dark colors.
                  the colors mixed with
            blood, sweat and tears
                    and with water from the stormy sea,
                       oil  from the escape boat,
                             and mud from labor camps.

     My painting takes shape from all of those.

              then i 've learned
            how to use
               the colors
             of the sun and of the wind,
                from flowers and from laughters
                         so
                        now
                       i have a bright painting
                           in my mental garden
                                       to enjoy it 
                          whenever
                                        and FOREVER.
