I invite you to read a poem that could change the way you look at yourself and your life. Take the next step.

 

The Invitation

 

 

Trapped

Within that shadow

Of self-doubt.

 

The Great Houdini

Could not escape.

 

Tangled in obscurity.

 

Afraid.

Afraid of letting go.

Afraid of that

 

Which shines within.

 

Your diamond

In the rough.

 

Become an archeologist

Of the soul.

 

Excavate

Your ecstasy. 

 

Step from behind

That shadow 

Of self-doubt.

 

Create brilliance.

 

The likes of which

Others

Only dream about.

 

Stride

From behind

That public gaze.

 

The masquerade

Is over.

 

Sway

To a passion

That ignites your soul.

 

Ya feel the glow?

 

The rhythm moves

In waves

Of reds

 

And blues.

 

Create your own

Brilliance.

 

Reclaim yourself,

Your legacy,

 

And join me.

Sedona:

Well written and simply put.

Sparse in it's presentation. Unusual.

Might benefit from greater use of rhyme and rhythm.

Do whatever you think is best.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
