Deliver the lines,

Write all the words,

Sing a new tune,

Declare autonomy,

Be that which is:


A free thinker,

In rebellion.

Stand strong and firm.

Be bold.



About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  1. Do so and your words will live forever.

  2. Love it. Simple. To the point. Exactly my point of view.

  3. Absolutely!

    โ€œWhatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”

    -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe?

    • You’re absolutely on the money with that quote!! I think its Goethe who also said “Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.” That quote was the reason I wrote this.

  4. Perfection. Just the words i needed tonight.
