Courage

Courage is risk
Of exposure
Failure
Potential reached
Possibilities imagined
Of showing too much
Of not doing so much

Courage is choosing
To step out
Step back
Step in
To feel the arrows
And the ache

I’m more ready
To be courageous
To risk becoming
What I don’t yet know
To shed my security
And illusions of certainty
I’m more ready
To be courageous
But I wonder
If I’m ready
