Creative Warriors Rise: A Message Of Strength
by Wendy Braun
‘Twas the holiday season,
and all through the house…
the actors were celebrating
that they stood up to “The Mouse.”
Declaring their value
and knowing their worth,
they picketed and marched,
and their voices were heard.
We can’t be replaced
and robots won’t do.
Time to read the new contract
all the way through.
Because real human connection
are what people want to see,
not manufactured moments,
but artists illuminating humanity.
Our self tape equipment
had been shut closed in its case.
While we fought for a new future
for one-hundred and eighteen days.
Our resilience shined bright,
Because creative warriors always rise.
No matter the battle,
no matter the prize.
No matter who tells us
the impossible can’t be done.
We forge ahead on this journey,
and stand strong ’til we’ve won.
Amidst twists and turns
and even detour signs,
we are artists to our core,
and it is light we want to shine.
So whether you are excited
or wondering what’s ahead…
Whether you are hopeful,
or pulling covers over your head…
Remember, my fellow warrior,
there’s one truth that still remains…
The artist’s journey is the road few travel
and YOU are here to stay.
No “double strike” or “pandemic”
can pull you off this path.
But your mental health matters most,
And those friends that make you laugh.
You’re in this for the long game.
It’s not a short distance run.
Careers take time to build and grow…
and you are nowhere near done.
In fact you’re just getting started
on the next chapter of your story.
You are the writer of it,
so bask in all its glory.
Decide today to acknowledge
that you have come so far.
Send love to whatever feeling arises
And make peace with where you are.
Your mindset, moving forward,
will be what matters most.
Especially when you see other’s successes
and all their bright shiny posts.
Don’t add meaning to these events,
but see them all as signs,
that your time, my friend, is coming,
and then tend daily to your mind.
Don’t linger too long in lack,
doubt or deep despair…
Feel the feelings of your wish fulfilled…
The answers you seek are there.
Because if you can hold the vision
And feel that your big dream is done.
The next action steps will be revealed
Along with your time in the sun.
Dare to focus now on your inner game
and you’ll find the key to your fate.
Right now a shift in perspective
will be what unlocks the gate.
And in the end, you’ll one day see
It wasn’t about all you had done…
But about your creative warrior journey
And who it required you to become.
