Photo Credits: BANKSY
With his characteristic stencil techniques Banksy has created variations on the theme of a girl with a balloon, but the most famous of these is the one discovered in the South Bank of London in 2002 on the wall of a stairway. In this work an innocent girl is reaching for a red heart-shaped balloon that is just beyond her grasp, and the words “there is always hope” are placed behind the girl. What is the meaning of this piece? Well, this image stimulated plenty of interest and discussion in the art world soon after it was discovered, and many different interpretations and meanings have arisen from this work, as with Banksy’s other works in general.

The image evokes the idea that hope is essential, as it gives people the motivation to continue on in life despite seemingly dreary circumstances. Bansky is cleverly able to use the squalid surroundings in which the work is placed to portray bleakness during difficult times and the possibility of happiness or satisfaction despite adversity. Love, symbolized by the balloon, is a fundamental human need and must be cherished. Banksy also uses the green grass growing along the edge of the wall to provide contrast and to represent nature. People even have tattoos of the balloon girl! This continues to be one of Banksy’s most popular pieces which has been put on many canvas prints and posters around the world.

POEM by Andrea Jane Williams
"The Final Goodbye"
Banksy's Art symbolises to me of 'letting go', freedom from hurt (my inner child).



When you look into my eyes
What do you see?
I can tell you right now
It's not what you want me to be

When you caress my face
Are you wondering
What's on my mind?
I'm struggling not to scream
As I try to unwind

When you kiss my lips
And declare your undying love
I ask myself
Who do you think you're fooling?
Why are you lying?

When I close the door
It's just not for tonight
But the rest of your life
I can no longer fight
The urge to be free

You love me?
Are you kidding me?
I'd rather be alone
Then be a party to a lie

Now turn around and go

Before you see me cry.

(c) 4th June 2012 Andrea Jane Williams

Andrea, I truly identify, most of us have had the "Final Goodbye". What I find my dear, that in their quest to be free, they actually set me free, as Dan (Butterfly poem) describes so beautifully. Now my soul is free to say, goodbye to you, your loss today!
I like it!

This is too personal to comment on. I only hope that you feel better soon and write about the good in your life rather than this tragic turning point that you need to take.
