You let go
of expectations
Accept what is/can be

You’re healed

resolve to enlighten

The creator
Must
No choice there
The process
Moves forward
Unaware
Of the turmoil

Social foil

The creator
Must
No choice there
The decision?
Enlighten or
Despair

I
Choose the former
Dare
to eschew the downward spiral
Negative glare
Despite pressure
Judgment
Critical stare
I resolve,
Care,
Create light
