Days 26-42. Start.

Well here I am. Day 42 of my 100 Days of Creating.

Today, I’m creating in the form of a poem.

Now, let me be the FIRST one to say that I’m not a poet. However, I like words, and sometimes, I like to pretend that I am a poet and that I know what I’m doing.  It’s kinda fun!

So without further ado, I offer you Day 42’s creation, “Start.”


START
Where you’re at
Right now, Start.
With what you have
Right now, Start.

 

Yes, YOU,
Right NOW,
START.

 

Dirty dishes? Start.
Dusty floors? Start.
Mountains of laundry? Start.
Tons of chores? Start.

 

500 emails? Start.
Self-doubt up the wazoo? Start.
Needy children? Start.
Fear of ridicule, too? Start.

 

You see,
You THINK it’s fine
To keep ignoring
The time
And your ideas
That come a knockin’

 

Because, well,
The soup needs to be made
Or
The linens need to be laid
Or
The dog needs to be spade
Or
Maybe simply, you’re afraid…..

 

BUT
Each day you let go
Is a day you can’t get back

 

And I know you…

 

YOU
Want to make a difference
YOU
Have something to say
YOU
Came here to be seen
YOU
Are ready to play

 

So Start.
Your life depends on it.
Let me say that again:
YOUR
LIFE
DEPENDS
ON
IT

 

Where you’re at
Right now, Start.
With what you have
Right now, Start.
Yes, YOU,
Right NOW,
START.
We’ve been waiting for you….
