ON COURAGE

     “How many have tried and then cried. Let us cheer them with the roars of lions.”
                                               F.W.
 

…for Kris, and all those who have been there…

COURAGE

People

  Who have beaten

     The odds

        Inspire me.


 People

   Who do something

       Bigger than themselves

          Inspire me. 

People

   Who try then cry

       In loss and defeat and stand again

           Inspire me.

People

    Who walk into their futures

         And give meaning to their losses 

             Inspire me. 


People

    Who after these events

         Become tougher wiser unconquered

               Inspire me.

 
These People

     Who are graced with knowing

           Of pain from some source

                 And who move beyond this pain

                        And use this pain to heal themselves

            And in so doing

                   Open the inner doors for themselves
            
                         And in so doing open the doors

                               For others... to face their tragedies
                                     
                                     And heal too...

                  These People...
                             Inspire...
                                      Me....  

People who...

      Have done...
                            "It..."

                       Whatever this "it" is...

Whether they do "it" quietly

                     And out of the limelight...

Or seem to have the capacity, the grace and the destiny
To bring a star out of the sky and radiate to the world
Something more...

          These people inspire me...
 
                            You inspire me...
