From fear of being different
From staying between the lines of others' drawing.
Let us instead break out and splash the creations of our imagination across a grey world of pain.
Let us demand that rainbows lead us to the pot of our gold imaginings.
Let us shake free our creative curls from their braids.
Let us risk a descent into the deepest mine of our inspiration and like heroes of old bring out the treasure into a waiting world.
Let us not hold back on what we ask of ourselves.
Let us be open and willing to accept our magnificence as creators.
Let us not settle for the acceptable or the timid.
Let us be ecstatic to remember our child like roars of joy at paint spread or games of let’s pretend.
Let us say yes to the sky blue, polka dotted explosion of words and music and colour.
Let us say yes till the word no disappears from our inner hearing.
Let us say yes and fly
LET US SAY YES.
