Oh, give me a helping
of courage please,
I pray

For fear has struck
this heart of mine

because this sketch of love
has changed

into a painting
of only beauty

so confusion holds
and it’s teeth sink deep
it’s feral breath comes ragged
but holds on tight

fight or flight?

I try to ignore this bird
Taking wing

So give me
a helping of courage
Please
To go into the unknown
I’ll swallow it down like boulders!
