Shine On

Don't ever let anyone convince you 
to not share your soul songs. 

The weaponized words 
they hurl towards you, 
are formed from 
their own insecurities. 

You get one shot, 
in this time and space, 
accompanied by 
crabs in a bucket, 
and a host of other cliches,
determined to control 
your creative mind. 

Give in to dark energy,
and you become it. 

Rise above it. 

By sharing your truth, 
you become a beacon 
to those searching 
for a way out 
of the abyss.

Thanks for stopping by Aviva! No worries, that happens to me sometimes too. Our muse seems to show up when it wants to, often when we’re busy doing something besides writing!

So why is it that I can't work out quite what to write as comment on this great poem with such a great theme? I should not be afraid to sing my song, right?
