Blow Your Trumpet


Blow your trumpet, let the world know

Feelings don’t be afraid to show.

Pat yourself on the back with praise,

the happiness you feel embrace.

You are the one that made it grow.


You had the courage to say no

your demons then to overthrow.

No more to live with that malaise.

Blow your trumpet.

You fought that battle toe-to-toe

to give yourself that warm glow.

You put those building blocks in place

to keep you in a better space.

Now live your life in the front row.

Blow your trumpet.

A very positive and inspirational poem, Charlie. We shouldn't be afraid to blow our trumpet if we have succeeded in defeating or achieving something in life.
