Debut

On a journey of self discovery,
come bearing gifts.
Bring all yourself and an open mind –
and all that you would allow in
others, allow in yourself
                and then some!
 
Bring a drum
and some comfortable shoes;
your favourite keepsake
and a spirit of adventure.
 
For this is your new dawn
laid open and waiting.
An invitation to play out your thoughts
and your being.
 
At the gate, lay down: and when you rise again
leave criticism, self-doubt and other
limitations to rest there.
The choice to reclaim them can be made
on your return
 
Bring your colours
and your voice:
for you will need to call your name into a
myriad of paints; a personalised rainbow to
decorate the landscape.
 
And when fear overwhelms
Sing it out
When uncertainty rocks
Dance it out
When restriction presents
Stamp it out
When hurt stings
Breathe it out
When questions rage
Call them out
When answers circle
Hold them out
 
 
And on a journey of self-discovery,
come bearing gifts.
Bring all yourself and an open mind –
meet yourself gladly, and with singing.
