FIRE OF YOUR HEART
You say you want to pull back
and not attract too much attention.
But, that isn’t the voice of the real You...
isn’t the song of your Soul’s intention.
It’s just local talk in the head that says,
“What if I fail and have to take it on the chin?”
“Or, on the other hand, what if I succeed
beyond dreams I’ve narrowly imagined?”
The fearful part wonders
what might happen if you spark
a viral spread of goodness
lit by the fire of your heart.
Would that open the gate, too,
for those who hate
for those who feed on spite,
and berate the purest expression of life.
Will that question stop you?
Neither your fear nor theirs,
nor the deep well of our burdens,
is reason enough to smolder and
grow older, perplexed by the
uncertainty of our complexities.
It’s time to be bold and not hide
or deny what is impeccably true.
The world will ascend when Love
is woven into all we choose
to be and do.
Free will is generous,
allowing worry to have its say.
And, by the way,
fear offers nothing
that will ever last.
So, there’s no reason to waver
as you throttle past
the naysayers that appear
in the crowd
or in the space
between your ears.
Courage is your birthright
dear carriers of Light.
Undaunted by theatrics,
unfettered by havoc,
never to deny the call of Love
and the benevolent fire of your heart.
