Of Courage

We have cried out the doubts,

Spent the deafening silent nights

Struggled between lies and truth-

And, at last, a new day comes

We welcome it

Scared…yet boldness quietly burns us

To do what we can do

And to despise not the consequences.

“Courage” by Jannice O. Geraldino

For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point…
