Courage isn't bravery, 
but fullness of the heart—
your body's drive to stay alive
compressed into a song.

After years, are you truly 
still so distressed 
to find yourself moved by 
all you can hear? 

Perhaps after all you should 
call yourself lucky 
to wander through life 
on the threshold of tears

because that way, 
you'll always know on which 
side of that verge
you belong.
