The mind can imprison us

or liberate us.

One little flicker of inspiration

can turn into a raging forest fire!

That image, that picture

stirs a feeling in our gut

spurring us on when we could

have given up long ago–not

even tried–our mind was

ready with excuse after excuse

to not only block our progress

but to keep us from even trying

-again and again and again.

What were we thinking before

we gave up to not even try

and take the first faltering steps

in the direction of where we want

to go–of our dreams.
