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.

Risky Paths

It is okay to see the risk

And not step

Fully

Into it.

Courage does not always

Mean

Precarious

Heaving ho.

Perilous paths

Indeed at times

Need forging,

But aren’t

All

Tests of

True bravery,

When often enough

The careful way

Around

Is a daring

Opportunity.

Trusty

Don’t be fooled by appearance,

Bravado

Or pomp.

Fiduciaries of trust

Aren’t those loudly declaring

The draining of swamps,

But those who watch out

For dereliction of duty

Against trolls

Full of tromp.

Cloaked

What thoughts are swathed

Under your wrap?

What life

What pain

Your brows speak of?

Your eyes avert

But hearts respond:

You’re seen

You’re heard

Becloaked or not.

Fraud or Dare

When your mind wants one truth

But all facts show another,

Will you see what is there

Or mold sooth as you’d rather?

When you seek to believe

What you wish

Not what’s real,

Will you claim truth a fraud

Or urge gyp

Be revealed?

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.
