Short and simple
Please read first fourteen pages of my novel Breaking The Ivory Spirit in "Short Stories" Thanks


Courage..
Is not always..
to fight
It is to stand against..
the masses
For what you feel..
is right..
It is the willingness..
to defend
Your convictions at..
all costs..
Knowing you have much
that could be lost..
It is bravery that..
allows you
To walk away..
Courage is what
brings you
back the very
next day..
To come back..
knowing
the pain and rejection
you will feel..
A pain so deep
time cannot heal..
I think I have courage ..
Most say I am a fool..
Because I keep
coming back ..
To fulfill my dreams
of you.
You are what keeps..
me going..
The dream I can never..
quite reach..
But I will keep trying..
As my courage and love..
run deep.

Courage has been traded in for comfort, the path of least resistance. Sadly lacking in many. Well done poem. I applaud you.

Erica, fantastic. Sometimes it takes all the courage one can muster and more, but you just have to have at it. Defeat must not be in our vocabulary.
