  • Sue, stand up, stand up!
  • Be bold, be strong!
  • Your talent, on world stage, truly does belong!
  • You are a beacon, shining bright,
  • Birthed to emerge, grow, and shine your inner light!
  • It is a crime to leave talent, dusty on a rickety, hidden shelf,
  • Set out your stall;
  • allow true expression of your amazing inner self.
  • Surely, you will experience some discomfort as you stretch,
  • far better than staying a self-defeating, self-pitying little wretch?
  • Rather, as you experience movement, create life-changing shifts,
  • you will, newly emboldened, dare to share your gifts!
  • Life is truly meant for us to live; by our own example, given
  • To those, like us, who have sometimes been
  • Squashed, ignored, or diligently working;
  • self-e(acing, behind a screenOf uniformity; water poured on burning
  • *re,Quashed down, made damp squib of all passion and desire.
  • And, as others bask in your new golden glow,
  • It helps for them, also to know,
  • That they have their own miracles to perform,
  • Whether on a stage, or as more often is the norm,
  • In their own families and communities,
  • through their daily life and deeds,
  • Do great work; sow and nurture the seeds
  • Of positivity, purposefulness and joy,
  • With which we all entered this world to buoyUp ourselves and others,
  • manifest the birth right of our mothers,
  • As we mix with friends, many others,who enter into our life’s stratosphere.
  • All add dark and shade, maybe cause us to shed a tear,
  • Perhaps of joy or sometimes pain, so, ultimately, of our own truth, understanding we gain.
  • Right here and now, we need to show,
  • Through heartfelt determination,strength of courage,
  • We all have the power to foster our own abilities, to grow;
  • Achieve our birth right to succeed; root out the dreaded weed
  • That with stranglehold choked downour well-intentioned schemes,
  • Left us struggling with dashed hopes, and broken,once beautiful dreams.
  • So meaning-full, join us to create, an interwoven, brilliant picture to which all can relate!
  • As one voice, stand up and state:
  • “We are here to live mindfully in this life, we choose creativity, positive intent over unrewarding strife
  • and as we choose to change how we ourselves perceive, in our own dreams, our legacy, our power, we truly believe.
