Behind the Curtain


Part of an Intimate Poem Series

To step up to the plate and fight for your passion, your purpose is no joke.

It is mental and emotional warfare. You are up against yourself every day.

You must unlearn everything that revealed itself behind the curtain of life — everything that no longer serves you.

You must learn the new truths that lie behind this once familiar, but now foreign drape.

Lifting each heavy fold, you must walk in headfirst, one step at a time, into pure blackness and solitude.

It is your audacity and courage to advocate for your aspirations that summon the universal hidden hands of help that will guide you to trust and slowly emerge from the dark to the other side.

You are reborn.
