Invitation… (Original)

A Poetic Call To Arms.

Put down your sword.

Put down your words.

Put down your thinking.

Put down who you think you are.

For a moment. (THIS precious moment.)

Put down your SHOULDS, your COULDS and your WOULDS.


Put down your sword, I invite you.

Put down your need to be right.

Put down your desire to be liked.

Put down your need to know what’s next.

Put it down, place it here, let it go.

Put down the past. Put down the future. And be… here… now…


Put down your sword.

Put down your black and whites, your wright and rongs.

Put down your judgements, your frustrations, your fears.

Put down your facts and your figures.

Put down your causes, your labels, your isms and schisms.

For a moment. (THIS precious moment.)


Put down your sword.

Put down your shield.

Put down your safety.

Put it down, all of it – and share what remains.

A smile, maybe. Or a hug. Or a dance, or a song.

Or just share some silence with me, please do.


Put down your sword.

For a moment.

I invite you.
