You weren't meant to simply exist

You weren't meant to simply exist

A Poem by Ama May Cooper

Write even if nothing comes to mind,
Let the pen paint the stories in unjustifiable ink,
Unmonitored and unrehearsed set it free.

Speak with no cautionary measures, 
Allow the words to flow naturally, 
Allocate no judgements to your ramblings. 

Think without pre-decided social implications,
Allow your mind to wonder the alternative possibilities, 
Unlock the cage of implemented thinking patterns.

Teach with acknowledgement to individual intelligence,
Nurture the spirits stumbling into a new world,
Encourage their flight on their own personal journeys.

Sing from the depths of your heart, 
Fill your ditties with honest affections,
Never silence your soul for fear of misunderstanding.

Dream your way to another dimension 
Project yourself to the very edges of the earth
Enjoy the freedom from these hefty fabricated limitations

Talk as if these words where your last
Never back down, never bend, never whimper 
Roar like that majestic king of the jungle you are

Live , and i mean truly survive
Acknowledge your multi-dimensional presence
Breath life into the very air

Create with your own special quirk,
Edit and manipulate the very atoms of the universe,
Remember there is no reason to be afraid.

This is a nice poem. I like the inspiration you give to the reader.
The imagery is vivid as life is given a special meaning. You captured
an entire world in this work.
