About "A mental still life in my mind MISSING"

In my childhood, I had a vision been in a kaleidoscope of colours, delightful trills of shades and forms. I however sometime seen the world in vivid tones and crisp shapes, like a clean-lined, white drawn print or a wall focused shadowing all my joyful emotions, unaware of whats going on in the world.
News paper after news paper, letter after letter, time after time the colours would blur and bleed into one another taking all forms and boundaries out of focus, leaving just an Impressionist's idea which I had splotched and dapped on canvas.
A mental still life in my mind
At one stage in my life they were beautiful, alive, thoughts of the world, sweeping happiness into my soul.
The thought of me not been able to do anything but sit back and watch my fellow brothers and sisters suffering in Palestine was the image eating into all the other images that swirled together like a mix of a dark cancer which I have painted. The brush in my hand the sorrow in my heart, the plead for peace painted, the burned flesh of baby Hosam's corpse the spun in my head.
The thought of me unable to help, made me feel filthy and evil and strange and wanted nothing more than to disappear, burrow back into nonexistence.
I now sit there trying my best not to think of the suffering anymore....
