Courage on a cloudy day
Seeing light in the raindrops
Smiling though tear streaked
Its easy to be strong when the sun shines.
Courage is facing sadness that wont go away.
Its walking into the wind during a hail storm to get home in time for tea.
Its deciding that being open to love is worth the pain of loss.
Facing today because tomorrow is coming too and tomorrow has a chance.
Courage isn’t bullish strength. It isn’t for the headstrong and fearless. Its not an argument and it isn’t a state of mind.
Courage is a spark. A whistle in the wind reminding us that we are worth our dreams.
Courage is for us.
