May the light

Spark the day

Glinting awe

On its way.

May the waves

Hug the sand

As your heart

Understands.

Do Not Feed The Gremlins

Nightmares of old

Do not feed the gremlins,

The worries

The woes

Do not feed the problems,

The myriad of “No”s.

Feed instead shoots of hope

Tender hearts

Ways to cope,

Feed the thanks

And the kindness,

Feed the soul

Evermore

With all things

Grateful

For.

 

11/27/2017 Update: This poem has been put into music by the talented composer Maggie Bell. Enjoy!

Set Free!

Set free the light that’s in your eyes

The dreams you birthed

But hid

In fear of failure.

Set free the path yet to unveil

The hopes

The awe

The wonder.

Walk tall into the day to come

Dance free toward your

Future.

Take the express train

To a fun-filled day

Recall the awe

Of speed and sway

And hold on to

The gift of play.

Your Kind Of Exceptional

Be your own kind of

Exceptional.

Not inherently better than others

Not more entitled

Yet still unequivocally

Uniquely

Equipped

To be the best that you can be

And do the most good you can do

As you.

Believe

Believe we can.

Believe we will.

Believe the way is there

Still,

To achieve.

Believe good lasts.

Believe hearts care.

Believe compassion

Matters,

Everywhere.

Three Line Tale: Opener

 

The stage is set to hushed repose

Incipient characters rush forth

Turn simmering muse to full on prose.
