manifesto. a poem. 

(the Black Letter Media manifesto)

 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. 

 when you listen to your inner voice,
 
see with your inner eye 
 
you honour your past self
 
because all flinching isn’t fleeing. 

 so steady yourself. 

 take care with every word you wield, 
 
for every stroke carries a magic,
 
a way into the hearts of many.  

 when you go below the surface, 
 
push yourself beyond mediocrity, 
 
you pay homage to those who came before. 

 for even they knew fear but never flinched. 

 so embrace the challenge because
 
when you have named yourself
 
when you have defined yourself
 
your authentic self is capable of brilliance.

 with every triumph your true spirit shines.
