This is a poem for the one who pushed my
Indiegogo campaign past the half way mark.
Dark were the days where development slowed
From such a strong start at the outset
I did not know what I had within
Me to access the glee ubiquitous
At the launching of this initiative.
With doubt lurking behind every comma
I kept at it, sending direct appeals, trying to ignore
The devil on my shoulder whispering sweet nothings
About my inherent uselessness.
I walked by reason standing there, smoking a cigarette lookin’ all…smug*
To get the idea of VideOpera off the ground
And found that reason can’t snuff this like his last butt against a stucco wall
Because this idea did not come from reason
Reason has no power here
So thank you Universal Aesthetic
(you know who you are, though I do not)
For being the wind beneath my wings today
And adding to the generosity of eighteen others
Who are with me in telling reason to take a hike.

Note: this campaign ends June 28th – that’s 29 days from this posting.
You, too, can tell reason to take a hike by following the link and becoming a contributor to When Falling…Dive. It’s a stretch and worth going for.
