Poems about Courage

COURAGE    

To speak ill of the world
Needs courage,  
But fortunately or unfortunately
Everybody has that courage.  
To love the world  
As one’s own,  
Very own,  
Needs courage.  
Unfortunately, most of us are wanting
In that courage.
The courage of the heart,
The courage of the soul
We badly need,  
And not the courage  
Of the unruly,  
Aggressive,  
Impure,  
Demanding vital.
