A poem. A hand full of courage. Blurry vision.
My poem contains all of the above images and my inspiration came from a quote that I read at tiny buddha.
Here is the quote, followed by my poem Courage and Coats.
What may look like a small act of courage is courage nevertheless. The important thing is to be willing to take a step forward.
Courage and Coats
Step, turn, find and ponder,
Courage holds itself strongly within your
Hands. What you reach is within sight,
If only you choose to wear your glasses.
Your vision gets blurry when you
Step sideways, and your sadness grips your
Tread, as hopefulness could never do.
I want you to top those challenges while
You take off your coat of fear –
The buttons are wary from your alterations
But I stand behind you and
Urge you to keep moving forward.
