A poem originally inspired by the song "Starry Starry Night" by Don McLean which in turn was about the painting of the same name by Vincent Van Gogh. I have been writing poetry since I was 16. Just like our videos, I reside in mediocrity when it comes to creativity in prose. Couple that with joining Artlist and finding some amazing cinematic music and I was inspired to create this series that combines those 3 mediums in a moving, inspirational, cinematic and time-sensitive way. We hope you enjoy!

Poem| A Tear and a Smile
Annotation by Muhammad Nasrullah Khan: The books teach you shouldn't let grief set up in your life, from taking over your life, and from damaging your dreams. Don't let difficult times or difficult times get in the way of your happiness, even when you can't see it. Khalil Gibran, however, thinks that pain is as important as happiness. I chose this poem to illustrate Khalil Gibran's unique perspective. His poems such as this one leave a lasting impression on the reader. Throughout the couplets, you will not be disappointed with your reading experience. The metaphors and imagery are so strong that I used my hands to represent the rising water, coming together, and floating over the land. I have never been moved to do that by any other poem. It is amazing. A second beautiful aspect of this poem is how beautifully it captures emotion and philosophy. Enjoy:
