A poem about perseverance and helping others with your soul songs

Don’t ever let anyone convince you
to not share your soul songs.

The weaponized words
they hurl towards you
are formed from
their own insecurities.

You get one shot,
in this time and space,
accompanied by
crabs in a bucket,
and a host of other clichés,
determined to control
your creative mind.

Give in to dark energy,
and you become it.

Rise above it.

By sharing your truth,
you become a beacon
to those searching
for a way out
of the abyss.
