Go Boldly

Go Boldly

Jean M. Olson

May you be brave enough to expose
your aching woundedness
and reveal your vulnerability.                                                                                  

May you speak your deepest truths,                                                                knowing that they will change as you do.

May you sing the music within you,
composing your own melody,
playing your song with all your heart.

May you draw, paint, sculpt, and sew,
showing the world your vision.

May you write letters, poetry, biography,
slogans, graffiti, the great novel,
laying bare your words to love and hate.

May you love even though your heart
breaks again and again.

And until the end of your days,
may your life be filled
with possibilities and courage.
