Courage

“… courage is fear that has said its prayers.”

Anne Lamott

 

No longer do we need to be ashamed for being afraid. If anything, fear tests the metal of our courage.

 

Fear screams, “Silence!”

Courage whispers, “Speak out.”

Fear insists, “Hate them!”

Courage assures, “Love each one.”

Fear scoffs, “No one will listen.”

Courage smiles, “Write anyway.”

Fear threatens, “Death comes!”

Courage points, “Behold, life!”
