Courage – a poem
Courage is the strength to stand up,
When it’s easier to fall down and lose hold.
It is the conviction to explore new horizons,
When it’s easier to believe what we’ve been told.
Courage is the desire to maintain our integrity,
When it’s easier to look the other way.
It is feeling happy and alive, and moving forward,
When it’s easier to feel sorry for ourselves and stay.
Courage is the will to shape our world,
When it’s easier to let someone else do it for us.
It is the recognition that none of us are perfect,
When it’s easier to fault and criticize.
Courage is the power to step forward and lead,
When it’s easier to follow the crowd, their please resound.
It is the spirit that placed us on top of the mountain,
When it’s easier to never leave the ground.
The foundation of courage is solid,
The rock that doesn’t roll.
Courage is the freedom
Of our mind, body and soul!
