Woord zoekt muur | Riebeekstraat

Woord zoekt muur | Riebeekstraat

Wat gebeurt er als spoken-wordartiesten worden gekoppeld aan muurschilderingen? Lees hier het gedicht dat ontstond bij de muurschildering in de Riebeekstraat. 

Tekst: Chery Salinas
Muurschildering: Naomi King, Loes van Reijm en Lotje Vos

They call me a dreamer
and I'd say they’re right
Ever since I was a child I’ve been creating entire worlds in my mind
where time is nothing but a construct
and concrete nothing but a ground to grow from
I thought it wasn’t worth a dime
Because of how success seems to be measured
And how art is somehow seen as a lesser profession
by a society that deems happiness a blessing
But damn, how sad is that?
Anyway, back to my happy place 
I chose to follow the white rabbit
You know, the one who’s always late
I stopped shrinking myself to accommodate 
and even asked a Caterpillar which path to take
Or maybe it wasn’t a Caterpillar so much as a mirror
Maybe it was all in my head
Maybe I should have listened to the Cheshire cat instead
when it told me we are all mad here
But maybe madness ain’t that bad
Or maybe it just takes a mad mind to be an artist
To measure the value of your madness and sell it
Or maybe, maybe mad minds are just minds that are magic
