Truth Or Dare. A poem by Tess McKevitt

Dare to be imperfect
Push the boundaries that
once had a firm grip on your confidence
Offer truth to your dreams by leading them into action
Be a more present Roman numeral than a disengaged millionaire

Dare to be beautiful
Remove the notion that beauty is just an aesthetic force of imagery
Lend truth to your inner beauty –
the design that will lead you dancing into your wiser years

Dare to be happy
Detach your mind and body from that which serves your essence a certain destruction
Give truth to the reality that happiness is an inside job of which you are Queen, King and Country.
