Courage should come from the soul within, the poem should light a fire inside us to stay true. But more often we crawl away inspite of our truth. In a this nebulous period, being brave will only brought us isolation. Unfortunately this is the time that require courage from bodies that has different abilities, from a toxic workplace environment, and from a place where love is forbidden.

So many times we rely on fear to guide us to safety. We should realize, being fearless does not mean that you are never afraid but a sign that there is something more important than fear.
