Have a Little Faith

Put the pen on the paper,
even if you have nothing to say,
trusting in the subconscious fire
to bring up its roaring flames.
Trust that all you’ve ever read,
all you’ve ever heard,
all you’ve ever been witness to,
is stored somewhere in the
mass of electrically charged neurons
that make up your brain.
Trust that millions of years
of ancestral DNA are swarming
in a cosmic soup of sorts,
creating something meaningful to write.
Trust in your instinct as an artist.
Trust in the habit energy
that has been established
over the past fifteen years of work.
Trust that when it’s time to deliver,
you can, and you will,
because you must, because it’s
what you were born to do.
Trust that when you knock on
the door, it’ll fly open, with wise
words streaming out in alliterate fashion.
Trust in the vital energy and passion
that propels you, that urges you,
that demands you put one foot
in front of the other, to write
one letter and then the next, to live
one moment at a time.
Trust that there is a purpose.
Trust that it is being fulfilled.
