Scared to peep out from under the covers in case our words or presence causes offence.
We often hold ourselves back, afraid to make a stand, shine a light and write and share our work.
Yet there comes a day, a spark of light touches our heart and we know that this is the day, the season and time to say enough is enough.
We hold our pens and declare:
I am alive. I am here to make a difference. I am the breeze in the wind, the ripple in the wave, the roar in the lion.
We look in the mirror of self-love, smile at our reflection and recommit to the truth:
I am ready to open my heart;
To honour my words, the messages inside;
To nurture my spirit, take a stand and surrender to the living word.
