A little poem dedicated to all of the collective courage we share and experience, day in, and day out.
Don't believe that we're courageous?
We have flown above the clouds
To lands once untravelled,
To strange and wonderful grounds.
We have dived beneath the oceans
With fishes bright and true,
We have jumped out of an aeroplane
(And yes that one is true)
We have flown through the air
Attached to a piece of string.
We have given up our homes
Our land, our everything.
We have worked in wonderful places
with people inspiring too,
We have overcome the odds,
We have opened up to you.
We have stretched and moved and breathed,
We have run further than we knew,
We have sat in utter stillness
And found a peace so quiet and true.
We have tested our beliefs
Our courage many times,
Never ever more
Than when we have to say goodbye
To all we thought we were,
Our stories and our grief,
To leave us free to wander
Through mystical towns and streets.
To wander by the river
To wander by the flowers
And always find our courage
In being present
