Poems with Purpose

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Holly DressON NOT Holly DressOFF, author of #30DifferentMicrophonesIn30days, as well as the founder of the #PauseReflectMoveForward movement, who will be bringing us “Poetry with a Purpose Fridays.”

Today, we are happy to bring you the first poem in the series, entitled “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!” The suggestion came from Larry Oldham of Memphis, Tennessee.

Life in a word is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

As people we tend to complicate it 

With overthinking and feelings of lack 

Doing this 

Can lead to a heart attack 

Life is meant for growth 

People don’t come with a remote 

We cannot fast forward 

We cannot rewind 

Sometimes 

We have to get out of our minds 

We tend to think of the wrong 

Not the good 

Why? 

Because it is easier 

The easy way isn’t always the right way 

Challenge yourSELF 

To be only you which is who you are supposed to be 

Maybe you heard this word in a movie 

It actually exists 

And so do you 

No matter what it is you are going through 

You 

Deserve you 

And to go live 

Supercalifragilisticexpialidociously 

Don’t disappoint yourSELF

Anymore
