Ang Pain ng Isang Artist

I cannot understand the pain that made the artist, this does not mean I cannot understand the art. We poets, we people of lamp and lighters of dark places. This is what we know. Take your pain, make it beautiful, make them dance. It’s so hard to hate something beautiful, It’s so hard to hate someone who is capable of love. It’s so hard to hate someone when they are singing.

– Motown, Neil Hilborn
