A for Action

As a child, the alphabet gives us power

slowly we conquer Creation word by word.

As we master words, come the thoughts,

Chaotically fighting for the power we feel within.

As we learn to channel our thoughts, inspiration springs forth ideas,

Our creativity splashing it’s unique color on the world.

And then sometimes, not often enough though, ideas become actions,

When our power disguised as courage cannot help but manifest a new Creation.

Written while wondering why I fail to act, even when in my mind I want to. You can read more about my work here.
