Poem: Chiding

Stand up
And give a shout!
Don’t stay silent
Don’t lose your voice

Keep moving
Walking or running!
Don’t stay still
Think and speak

If you wish
To change the world
Or even save it
You must let go

Let go of all your preconceptions
Let go of fears and biases
Let go of unhealthy attachments and desires
Let go of negative thoughts and feelings

Think positive and believe
Be willing to change
For if you don’t
You will see shadow forevermore.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
