To Be, to Become

To be, to become
to believe in yourself
the inner voice that propels
you forward
a waterfall of wisdom
of life
fears and rejections
triumphs and tragedies
laughter and hope
belly button stuff
the main course
at life's banquet
for those wishing to attend.
grateful are the many
who stand firm
in a brisk breeze
head up, eye to eye
with the dragon.
Flickering stars
candles lit
from your strength
your courage
your hope
your faith, burning on.
