Inspirational Poetry: You Will Never Find Yourself

My daughter and I took a trip to the Kiss My Genders Exhibition at The Hayward Gallery (more about this in Tuesday’s Create Date) and there was a booth playing the old pride anthem “I Am What I Am”.

Daughter started to dance and I managed to capture the moment on Insta (see below) and it inspired a poem.

Here it is, this week’s inspirational poetry: You Will Never Find Yourself

You Will Never Find Yourself

Whatever you do
my dear maker
don’t go
looking for yourself
or seeking to
improve.

You are not
to be found
no.

And nothing
whatever
in you
needs
to be fixed.

You
my beauty
are what
you are
and whatever
you are
currently
creating
from that.

This only:
whatever
you make
and do

make it
aloud.

Do it
proud.
