Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Integrity

Posted Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Do you have the courage to be creative?
What if your life depended on it?
It does!

Your creativity
What you offer the world
Your essence
That’s your life.

You
Beautiful You
Starts with unique thought
Experiencing the world
Experiencing yourself
Melding them together
Out pops you.

What is it that we are all after?
To be known
And loved

So why do we hide?

‘Cause we’re afraid
Afraid we’ll be known
And despised
Or judged
Or worse
 So we hide.

Your journey into the real you
Is dangerous
Requires courage
Fortitude
Stick-to-it-ive-ness

There will be pit-falls
Judgment
Or worse

There is also life
Passion
Love
Freedom
All the stuff
Worth dying for

And
And you get to be you
At least more you
Than yesterday

So try it on
The courage, I mean
See what it gets you
Real life is waiting…
