Poem: Self Taught

Self Taught

The simple
work.
no need
to make it
complicated.
The important things
rarely are.

Loading.
Unloading.
Holding on.
Letting Go.
Knowing when
to do what.

And knowing,
no matter what,
you will survive;
each step
and misstep
doing no more than changing the colors
of your masterpiece.

And so you work
without competition,
except the voices
in your head,
the ones planted
by others,
and magnified, time and time,
buy our own words.

Learn new words.
Joy.
Power.
Beauty.
Claim them.
Make them
yours

for they are already
you. Yes,
already.
Learn new words

About this poem

Life’s simpler than we make it. We are stronger than we think. And yet we tell ourselves….
