Make it.
Write, paint, splatter
words, colors,
images on paper
and into the air.
Make the ordinary spectacular.

Reshape, twist,
spin your stories.
Breathe life into
the flatland others ignore.
Squint and search for the hidden.
Make the ordinary spectacular.

Deliver with passion.
Reshape your doubts,
fears, and insecurities.
Dance as you pray.
Spin hope into a vision
that embraces your world .

Transform needs into steps.
Find direction in thunder
as well as silence
to inspire.
Always remember your way.
Make the ordinary spectacular.
