You ask me, 'what is courage?'

Courage is seeing the hail of fire that surrounds you;

The flashes of light that blind.

Projectiles that score flesh and bone,

Sending red rivers splashing through the sky.

Courage is seeing all of that and staying on to fight,

Simply because there are those who cannot.
If you enjoyed it, please spare a fave! :iconpussinbootsplz:


Alright my dears,

This is a piece under a different persona from 'Holy Man', I know you been waiting long but I haven't decided on a voice for him yet. So I wrote this piece using my 'Lady Butterfly/Angel's Wing' persona. The name isn't decided but basically, this guy will do all the emotional free verse and inspirational stuff because he's a nice guy.

The piece itself is obviously about war. I mean, I've been a soldier and I do respect GOOD soldiers, most are just doing their job and trying to make a living, nothing wrong with that. So I wanted to write something that spoke about their courage and the fact that some people, even today, will still put themselves in the line of fire to save you.

- None. Just write a piece about what courage means to you (^_^)/

Everyone wishes they were brave at some point. The important thing is simply to pluck up the courage and try ^^

I just posted one. Here, I'll write it on the comments. It's not labeled as about courage, it's more of the concept.

Few know the difference,
But I am one of those who do.

It’s the difference between being dragged into the arena
Or walking in with head held high.
It’s the difference in circumstance,
And if you choose to laugh or to cry.

Whether you stay down or you rise,
It’s your choice to make.
Just know in your heart,
There really is a difference in the path you choose to take.

Laugh or cry,
Rise or fall,
Give up or fight back,
It’s completely your call.

Just know the difference before you make up your mind,
Because it’s your call alone, and to those who are watching, 
Your choice may change lives.

And if there are too many who manage to stay, facing the described, courage is defined by walking away.
