I Wrote This For You
One time for the anxious.
The amazing people who get so hyped that they run and hide from their greatness.
The brilliant mind. Imprisoned by the troubled soul.
A condescending warden of a brain who proclaimed that the genius had to settle for average.
Don’t stand out.
I wrote this for you. Just for you.
My pen moves in sync with your racing heart. Erratic, quite manic, slightly breathless.
For you I breathe.
For you I share my pen’s sweet release in hopes that my vulnerability will remove the invisible shackles from your feet that keep you from your greatness or the hand from your throat that suffocates you and takes your ability to speak.
These words I write are intended to touch your soul.
You are great
Genius, in fact.
Take the step. Leap of faith.
Share your art. Share your heart.
Watch it break in the hands of few, feel it thrive and swell in the minds of many.
You are gifted, needed, necessary
And when the anxiety gets heavy
And your heart aches from fear,
Remember, you are exactly what’s been prayed for. The greatness you fear is what you’re made for and when you want to run, lean in-your breakthrough won’t break you.
If no one is there, I’m here.
Remember, I wrote this for you.
