Poet Bio

everything you have
ever imagined already is.
just pluck it out of the ether
curl it up in your fist
charge it up with good intent
and throw it out to the world.
with every fleeting thought
your soul whispers to your
future self that your
true self already is.
hidden between insecure and fear
but all flinching isn’t fleeing
so steady yourself.
and when you listen
to your inner voice and
see with your inner eye
you honour your past self.
take care with every word you wield
for every stroke carries
a magic, a way into the hearts of many
your authentic self is capable of brilliance.
when you go below
the surface. push yourself beyond
mediocrity, you pay homage
to those who came before you
for even they knew fear
but never flinched.
with every triumph
your true spirit shines
