REFLECTIVE/THINKING POEMS

LET MAGIC HAPPEN

By Josie Whitehead

Let Magic Happen

Children, listen carefully, 

    There’s something you must do –

And it’s not just something you should do,     

But I should do this too.

Move from that pleasant comfort zone
      Into a brand new place:
Look round for something different
       Or notice that new face.

Don’t dig yourself into a rut 
      And not try something new:
There could be talents you may have
      That are waiting to break through.

There could be people you have met 
      Who’ve never seen your smile.
There could be clothes you’d never wear
       ‘Because they’re not my style!’

There could be sports you’ve never tried
      Or books you’ve never read,
‘But I don’t think I’d like that sport!’
       Is that the thing you’ve said?

Magic comes not from a wand
     But by the things you do.
Get out of that soft ‘comfort zone’
     And try out something new.

The opportunities will come:
     You’ll grab them if you’re smart.
And every day's a 'magic day'
      And a darned good day to start!
