Courage

 

It is not the punches

you return

or

the loves you

have confessed.

 

 

It is the hand you

extend

to give help

amend,

defend.

 

It is the words you

cry out

unceasingly,

in front of crowds

head stuck in clouds

and judgements –

just

for that one person.

 

 

Explicitly

expressed

emotions crawling

on your skin,

smiles sprawling

on lips –

not yours-

but that’s the

magic.

 

Tragic

thoughts

expressed in their rawest form

unapologetically

whip up a storm

of passion

frantically.

 

To a stranger

it is the vulnerability

displayed

the teeth you show

the gap between your brow.

 

Undress

express

your layers

break down your barriers

your weaknesses,

now warriors.
