Courage

“May I have the courage today,
to live the life that I would love,
to postpone my dreams no longer.
But to do at last what I came here for,
and waste my heart on fear no more.”

  1. I wish that I could actually do that and this fear in the pit of my belly would go away! So hard to do when you see your whole world changing and falling apart in front of you.

      Here’s a poem about Fear that’s also hard to do.

      I Do Not Fear… I Fear
      by Eric Cockrell
      “I do not fear….
      Armagadden, not the end,
      not soldiers wearing masks,

      not the plague, not nuclear disaster….
      not prisons, not persecution,
      not being labeled or hated.

      not losing it all,
      not guns, not drugs, nor
      one world order…..

      but i do fear….
      not living all that i can live,
      not giving all that i can give,

      not matching beliefs with action,
      not seeing all people as people,
      not doing what i know is right….

      not standing when i should stand,
      not saying what i should say….
      not writing the words i’m given…. ”
