Getting Started

Are you thinking of something evocative to share?
Write a line of truth and proceed from there
Strip away the pretense and savoir faire
Let them squirm uncomfortably with your honesty laid bare

Don’t leave yourself open for interpretation
Don’t squander the chance to jolt your reputation
Always be focused on the elevation
Beware the lure of pointless desecration

Leave them all thoroughly astonished
Never be concerned about being admonished
You always run the risk of being demolished
By those who would prefer if you were perfectly polished

But being rough and ragged is far more suitable
As long as your point doesn’t become inscrutable
Evolution is the key, never be immutable
Your ascension to greatness will be irrefutable

Are you hoping you have something provocative to say?
Remove your emotional armour and throw it away
Expose your true self in an unguarded display
Invest in the black and white, don’t wallow in the grey

Leave no doubt where your course is charted
Disregard bad advice that will be imparted
As long as you commit to being open-hearted
Why worry so much about getting started?
