I found this poem from one of my Instagram followers and I thought I would share it with you. Its about #CHALLENGE, that word that shouts aloud from the mountain top- DO SOMETHING. Many of us hate that word as it forces us to employ energy and make something happen as a result of you DOING something.
M.James Cooper is a poet whose book will be published before the year is out. He writeS poetry, very thought provoking poetry.
I love poetry. It is a powerful source of communication only a few of us possess. As Ernest Hemingway says…
Poetry- WRITE HARD AND CLEAR ABOUT WHAT HURTS.

Challenge, yes I am guilty of running away from you.
For some odd reason I’ve decided that I don’t like your face.
The way it bends to fit my own.
Telling me to be more brave,
Challenge the brain, the body,
Challenge love & people, perspectives, challenge the vision.
Challenge what you know, & grapple with the uncommon;
no sense of danger, like a child.
Yes like a child does until the adult screams & offers him knowing;
as Eve did with Adam.
These words are easy,
the rest is hard. -Wrestle
