Wish I Had Written This



UNBOUND


Before the pen drops...
Before the color stains...

Before the sound breaks
the silent night,
there is that moment,
where we sit with
our hearts,
our limbs
bound by imaginary ropes
of our own making.

Be brave creative souls.
Choose to be unbound.
Choose to create with
immediacy
and passion.
Choose to cut through
the threads of self-doubt,
the paralysis of perfection.

Use your hands,
your eyes,
your voice
to keep God's creative force alive.
It is your gift to the world
and to God.

Embrace this unbinding,
and watch yourself
fly free.
