Courage

Courage
The extra step that makes a mile
The extra turn in a dancer’s routine
Taking the chance on an overhand serve
Not being upset when you fail.

Courage
Taking a chance
Knowing the consequences
Believing in yourself
Getting back up when you fall.

Courage
Standing up to a bully
Who may be bigger
Faster
Stronger
But trying anyway.

Courage
The offender’s kryptonite
The one thing that can bring about a change
He will lose
If only enough can show

Courage
Going against society
Disregarding traditional belief
Values
Morals
All in the name of what is right and what is wrong.

Courage
A child with cancer
Who gets up every morning,
Knowing it will be no different than before,
But who gets up anyway.

Courage
A soldier
Deployed for months
In honor of his country.
His colleagues die around him
And he knows he may come to the same fate,
Yet he continues on his mission
Hoping to make his family proud.


Courage
The shy man’s savior
The brave soul’s claim to fame
The fuel to the fire
That is life.
