confidence - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
These brick walls have been my cocoon for the years I needed their sanctuary, and I thank them. My eyes wander their rugged clay surface, their rosy colour bright yet earthen. My hands feel the warmth of sun, imparted to them yet given back with a steady determination. My heart wishes to stay and leave, yet duty calls. For once the healing is done, it is time for confidence, time to fight for others as you wished others would have fought for you.
I'm good, I am, I feel it right into my bones that I've got more than it takes to make it. The reason I don't go for it is that the people running the show right now are so very stupid. If I get there, if I do this, will they have the good sense to listen or will they fail to fight their feelings of envy and fear? The truth is, high intelligence is so welcome at first, when folks see the great advantage to being given answers they otherwise have to work for; everyone enjoys a gift. But what then of the jealous hearts and the power mongers, what of them? What when the gifts are received and they want the "podium" all to themselves? I can rock this, I can take it home and then some... but you need a bit more self control and then maybe I'll do it. Because I'm gonna need sometime to fix this mess, not an all access pass for a weekend, month or even a year... you're gonna need me as long as I live and that's a fact. So, yeah, I'm confident in me, I suppose what I am saying is... I need to be confident in you.
When you resonate your mind with your soul, you will learn to live through a love that is so honest it is raw. In the beginning you will be as a child in the wintry wind, pulling clothes around tight, seeking shelter; yet hold on. For in time you will be as the child in the most ambient of gardens, enchanted by the blooms, laughing with a joy that leaps and twirls. So be brave and grow big, grow strong by having faith in your own heart to be your guide. And, love, should you ever need a light and there are none, you can be your own; flood your system with the love that runs in your veins and let it shine bright.
This is the confidence of the phoenix, of one who has suffered into ash, reborn in the flames of hot pain and commanded to sing. This is confidence hard-won yet deep, anchored in the true self that is always safe at our core. It is that which grows in within, purging that which was born of fear, clearing the way for love to grow, to take up every aspect who I am. And in this rawness, in this absolute vulnerability I am confident... because in these words you will never find me... only you... for we are truly one.
