A Request to Share by Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.


Mind is flooded with the wave of thoughts

The imagery is playing like a cinematic action movie

Artist’s brains function in such a different way

People enjoy but cannot understand how we got to the destination

Everything our senses glean brings something to the creativity

The “hate” comes from so many sources, too much to record here

Because we believe in our dreams we are not perturbed

We can “see” it when others won’t

This is to attempt to explain the idiosyncrasies

of the inner working of creativity

The genre does not matter-for it’s true for everyone in artistry

In various degrees but it does burn and fuel

our passion and drives our lives

Continually searching for perfection

that can never be attained but always reached for

Just having the desire to have what is being done resonate with others

For the connection to people is one of the many secrets the lives within us

That is to be revealed without shame

Afraid but excited as to how it will be received

Sharing a piece of you-not easily-but a price that is gladly paid

So asking that you respect and seek to peer inside the mind of an artist

You may learn something about you that was never “new”
