Authentic Blurt

At last weeks Lit Cafe Poetry nite, after I stopped getting self-conscience and stopped trying to be Nick, The energy in the room rose to fantastic heights and we pulled in 21 open mic readers including a few virgins. In closing the evening, I was so unaware of myself, so into what occurred during the evening, I surprised myself with these words tumbling out of my mouth.

GO
hug your significant other.
GO
hug a stranger.
GO
hug your enemy.

Save the world.

First thought, best thought. Unrehearsed, unscripted, just pure wishes to all that made an amazing evening. Some of the best lines I ever came up with, I don't even believe that I said it.
