Frank Malaba: Prosetry

*Dreamers of Immortality*
When we paint, a piece of us is left on the canvas.
Each stroke, a fraction of our soul refracted like light through a prism.
We are harvesters of light that are immortalized through our feelings.
Paint in itself is just pigment.
Paint in our hands is every emotion ever felt by man.
Paintbrushes are magic wands that allow humanity to dream beyond belief.
                –Frank Malaba

 

“One day you will roll out of bed and not recognize the face staring back at you in the bathroom mirror. There are parts of us we can’t help but leave behind as we go through the mundane, the fruitful, the spectacular and the heavy in life. We need to remember that sometimes life runs out of glitter and we need to see things as they are. That is called GROWTH.

Sometimes we’re just falling. Like those dreams where you’re falling from an airplane and the clouds are rushing past you but you never really splatter onto the ground below. That’s FEAR. Fear of the unknown trying to own you. Don’t fall for it. “- Frank Malaba
