to do what’s true

a new poem for all your roof-raising, edge-pushing and silent acts of fearlessness

+++++

to do what’s true, true for you
takes bravery in the blood

you must decline the invitation to shrink or dim
say no to slipping down the slope, subdued
refuse to be stopped dead in your tracks

every time you press on, step up and open wide
each intrepid act
has a thousand unseen ripples
each one, ripping into a frozen sea inside a frigid heart
each one, melting what was once a fortress

even though you may never see
how your courage has kissed the sleeping beauty of a mind

do it anyway, friend
do what’s true, true for you

whats-true
