I’m gonna write something brilliant,
that compels your brain to kick into high gear,
that sticks in your gut as you read it
and wraps itself slyly around your heart,
twisting your mind to think differently
you ever thought you knew.
I’m gonna write something beautiful,
breathtakingly lush and opulent
using words and images that enliven your humanness
and awaken your humanity,
opening your heart like a candy wrapper
so you’ll laugh and you’ll cry,
because it’s almost too lovely to know.
I’m gonna write something inspiring,
that burns into your heart and mind with a holy fire,
that makes you jump up out of your easy chair
and easy life and easy thoughts
to commit to something grander and more astounding,
and more meaningful and more sacred
than you ever knew
was residing in your soul.
I’m gonna write something real,
and the Truth of it will change you
it will change me too.
