'Light Work' - 100 Day Poetry Contest Day 96

4년 전

Welcome... To a 100 day journey into the poetic minds of the @steemitschool writing community!

Today I am going to the streets for the first time to try my hand at commanding a crowd and delivering my poetry to the un-expecting...

I'm really excited!

Wish me luck...

This piece is about just living your passion and letting your light shine - Not letting it be distinguished or diminished by the expectations of society, or your family, or your religion, or whoever else...

Just Be Free


With Love

Light Work

You don’t have to wait.
Conditions do not have to be ‘perfect’ -
If there really is such a thing.
But waiting for them to be so is detrimental to your cause,
Because of course -
You just want to shine brightly,
To share your passion with the world -
You want to give your gifts so freely,
To every man,
Boy and Girl,
And let the extent of your truest love,
Fully Unfurl.
Well -
Just Do It.
Don’t delay in sharing your dreams today...
Get out on the street -
Just Do It your own way.
‘Cause if you wait...
Well maybe you’ll never make it happen.
Because the conditions that you say you need,
May well never come to be,
And so that fire inside of you,
May never be set free.
This is what happens to so many bright stars.
They come to shine their light,
But soon forget just what they are.
They fail to ignite,
So they don’t reach quite so far.
It’s bizarre.
Because that light should shine on throughout the entire universe.
But instead of blasting outward...
We often send it in reverse.
Going back inside the core of us,
Hiding away from the world around.
But there’s so much light within you -
It’s just waiting to be found.
