The fear of failing
being seen as
I’ve had all these fears
All these moments
And I’m still alive
There is a second sometimes when I post something
Where I literally have to walk through a brick wall
Wizard or Muggle?
If you make it through the indecision
You are a wizard
Because you just beat some of the biggest fears in the world
Good on you
Now get up
And do it
Until you find
That only the wizards are truly free
and that in itself is worth trying
To lose your fear of flying
- I joined Tik Tok yesterday following a recommendation from a fellow instagrammer that it would be a great platform for my poetry mini movies.
- That remains to be seen but it is a huge distraction and highly entertaining.
- I was scrolling through and watching hundreds of normal people having the best fun and dancing and being crazy. It was great – I had sore cheeks from smiling.
- Until I came across a couple of accounts talking about of bullying on tic tok.
- How bad it was. How severe. Of course it would be – humans aren’t allowed to have fun and be creative without other humans who are negatively inclined bagging them. I can see how the hate would be equal to the joy on such an app.
- This will happen to anyone of us regardless of age, gender or area of interest that decides to put our work or that stands up and decides they are going to live their lives creatively and according to their own internal beat.
- When I first began blogging and everyone who knew me knew I had a blog – it was terrifying
- Here I am, every day, laying heartfelt poetry on the table on all my social media platforms
- I don’t know how many times I hit post with red cheeks and a heart beating so loud I could hear it
- I kept going because …I don’t know, I’m stubborn, I love poetry and because this sort of bravery is freeing
- Very freeing
- And it gets easier although I still hesitate sometimes or throw something back to drafts until I can work up that extra oomph
- This was one of my favourite mini movies/poems to write and make – I hope you like it as well
- We are the wizards and every day we get to choose to have an awesome life and live it just the way we please
- May your day be wonderful and magical and blessed from my heart to yours ❤️ 🤘🌈😘😎
