Courage

Courage is not

In facing the storm

Blowing your way

For Sometimes there isn’t

Any other place to escape

Courage is in embracing

Every shade of your emotions

And putting it on display

Courage is in

following your passion

Inspite of all odds

And to smoothly sail

Courage is in holding up

Just before slipping

In quagmire of desires

And staying firm on your ground

However tough it may sound

Courage is just a handful of things

Yet there are very few

Who can be called

Courageous today

  9. People think I am a courageous person because I have lived in two third world country. I have learned that it takes more courage to live in the USA because it’s too easy. There is burden of ease and abundants that gets in the way of listening to what God has to say and for us to do. It takes more courage to witness to someone here. To give the gospel in the remotes corners of the world to a group of people who honestly takes less courage. You are a great writer, love this.

  13. The lines that I really love in your piece
    “Courage is in embracing

    Every shade of your emotions

    And putting it on display”
    Once you open yourself and express your emotions there can be that feeling of being weak and vulnerable, so when you embrace that expression then you have discovered more of yourself, so in your case you are making yourself in a powerful woman. Men very often fear showing emotion that causes tears, I wonder what women fear most in terms of emotions.

    1. Ahh it’s the other way around my friend …….I am the one who struggles with expressing emotions ….. But I have come across a few people who break that gender barrier ….men who have no qualms in showing their vulnerability ….their tears …….and I now down to each one who conquers this blockage in life

      1. Maybe your poetry is your way of expressing emotions, or trying to express emotions. I sometimes use poetry to do that, that helps especially if there is separation by oceans or whatever. I tend to ‘bottle some things in’ then blurt out on some emotions, so poetry actually helps me to try and overcome that. How you interact with parents can also have an influence, at least it had an influence on me. Oh well, back to the typewriter as I work on a longer piece between poetry, the garden, and household chores. Have a wonderful day 🙂
