Who Me?

courage

It only takes one
to start a change.
Conviction, courage,
willingness to go
against popular opinion.
The very idea terrifies
us–who me?

Yes, you, so filled with
fear, with a need to be
accepted, liked, loved.

Within each of us lies
a kernel of courage
to finally declare,
to become what we
are meant to be.
The time is now
for us to be our all,
a beacon for
others
to find
their courage
to join the call.

    “The time is now for us to be our all, a beacon for others to find their courage to join the call.” Yes it is time we stand in unity. Unfortunately we wait till the disaster, the bombings, the shootings to work together instead we need to do it now during the calm to allow the peace and calm to grow.

      I do not understand how it happens either. Early each morning I sit with a pad and pen and the intention of writing at least six poems so that I can post every four hours. Then, they come. Truly they must be from Source for they come quickly with very little editing needed. I do not even remember them afterwards. The poems come for as long as I am willing to sit and write them. I had 20 one day when I was just trying to see how long they would keep coming. Sometimes poems come with a theme I have been thinking about, but often they are about subjects that are common to us all and that I have not considered. I do not understand the process but perhaps we have the ability to tap into some creative force. Maybe all creative efforts of ours is manifested like this in someway. I see this kind of creativity expressed in other media so I am not sure. I once asked, “why poetry?” and the thought arrived: “because you do not like poetry and this way you will not think it is you.” guess Source knows my big ego. lol, Shane, I believe that we all can manifest like this. Have you tried? I know the discipline of sitting at a certain time each day without fail with a firm intention, helps. Let me know if you try…it need not be poetry but any kind of creative process you enjoy. hugs, pat
