Up on a pedestal 

What does it mean. 

Perhaps it is someone you admire. 

Or it is a person of Importance. 

Who decides. 

Is it based on common understanding.

Or personal preference.

Might it be transforming ideas into art. 

Is it solely your imagination. 

Or the opinions of other people.

Looking at the pedestal it is personal. 

It is my sculpture. 

Me alone on the pedestal. 

Different from the rest. 

Outside of the norm. 

Power comes from believing in myself. 

Reality emerges through my work. 

Communicating my thoughts. 

Often misunderstood.

Now can be seen clearly.

People can form their own impressions.
