Wild Imagination

and they say 'let your imagination run wild'

Let your imagination run wild

They say

Is that it?

Really?

That’s true liberation, right?

A wild imagination

Imagine, let’s say

If I was wild?

Frowned upon

Ostracized

Seen to be a creature of the devil

Seen to be a failure at life

For a woman who expresses

Is crazy, right?

And a woman who feels

Is too much, right?

Well

I like the crazy makers

Imagine

If crazy makers were welcome

We could enjoy the art on the wall

The dance on the streets

For to live in a world

Where only our imaginations run wild

Is almost like living in a jungle

Without trees

The essence is lost

The truth is hidden

Cast aside

Pushed away

Relentlessly

Cowardly

So, women

Shall we? Shall we step into our power?

Instead, let’s imagine a world

Where not just our imaginations are wild

Let’s be in a world

Where we are wild

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
