a poem titled ‘nobody speaks for the self’ (language warning for those sensitive spirits)

I am not the art on a magic bus
I am not the son who under performed
I am not the anger that past enraptures me with
I am not the suffering of a penance I’ve been carrying for years
I am not the human who rapes and pillages this Earth
I am not the asshole who you think I am
I am human
born to make mistakes
and to create
I am the black sheep fleeing the herd
here to be present in this mystical land
to surf the waves the ocean presents
to find my spirit
and to liberate the lies
I am here to experience a simple life
the one I have dreamed of
for most of my life

I am
nobody
in particular
in this place.

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
