You Are Amazing
There are so many things I loooove doing and I do my best to do them all so I don’t feel I am missing out on anything.
One of these things is writing poetry.
I was ever so fortunate when I was in middle and high school as I had the most passionate teachers in literature and poetry, I loved reading the books assigned not only because they told a story or taught me something new but because I got to step into the author/narrator’s mind and interpret what he meant at the time.
Even to this day I have so much respect for those ladies who gave so much, and I honour them by writing non-fiction books and poetry.
So, back in November 2017 a mentor asked to write a poetry to recite in front of an audience at a conference I was attending at the time, I couldn’t say no AND I had no time to write it, also I hadn’t written anything for a while, so it felt a bit challenging.
I let my innate intelligence guide my fingers over the keys and I let the words flow as if an unknown energy took over me and this is what came out.
You are amazing!
The words, the energy and the sentiment behind this poem are a celebration to life and to love and to us.
This is one of my favourite poems to date, so enjoy it.
Please share this poems in your social networks and spread this celebration.
With all my love,
You Are Amazing
Wondrous and marvellous being,
YOU were born out of a miracle,
Out of the universe of love YOU came from,
The chances were slim, yet you made it.
The day to arrive into this world came,
You fought and you pushed and out you came.
The light you saw and a deep breath you took, AND
Out a scream of LIFE came marking your arrival.
Hours, days and months of learning and growing came,
Everything was, oh so new and yet all so familiar,
You fell, you failed, you cried and AGAIN you stood,
Your sheer resilience and tenacity NEVER let you down.
Do YOU even know what an incredible GIFT to this world YOU are?
You are an inspiration, you are a god among us,
Yet, you seem to have forgotten who you REALLY are!
So, here I am a messenger from heavens to tell you just that.
Your life and what you do matters, YOU matter,
Cast the doubt and the fear to one side and break free,
Step into your greatness, let the light a new way show you,
Let your life be that of your dreams, be a flame in the fire of life.
Your thoughts, your ideas and EVERYTHING you do the world they can change,
You have forgotten the essence of who you are,
You have let the noises from the world around drown you and your awesomeness,
WAKE UP, STAND UP, STEP UP, TAKE A STAND and reveal who you TRULY are.
Listen to my words, hear my message,
I believe in you, I know who you really are,
Stop playing small, this is NOT your real role,
You are, oh so much more.
Riches, wealth and infinite abundance your birthright are,
Anything you can have, but the do must you do,
And firstly you ought to be, not anything nor anyone,
Be, be you, be who you know yourself to be.
Magic, love, passion AND so much more,
Listen to the voice of your heart, feel the fire burning in your soul,
Be, live, love, find yourself, free yourself,
Wake up to the real you, and live for the first time.
Learn, unlearn and most importantly relearn,
That you are love, that you are important,
That there is no one like you,
Nor there will EVER be ANYone like you!
YOU ARE AMAZING, REMEMBER THIS,
YOU ARE INCREDIBLE, KNOW THIS,
YOU ARE SENSATIONAL, BELIEVE THIS,
YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT, NEVER FORGET THIS!
