Making It Up (a poem)

fold yourself the mind you want. make a paper hat and wear it on your head. hold it tight when the wind blows.

paint yourself the heart you desire. pin it on your jumper, be proud of your colours. pin it fast and don’t mind the rain.

write yourself the love you love. hold that paper tight in your hand. unfold it often, read your plan aloud in sun and snow.

walk yourself the world you want. each step is breath. its your life. stamp big-footed. walk soft. dance your way in all the weathers.

– john siddique
