Courage

What does courage mean to me?
Well it isn't being fear free.
It's being brave and staying strong,
Facing all my problems, head on.
It's conquering hardships, being bold,
Reducing worries out of my control.

When I have to make a choice,
I listen to my inner voice.
I'll never lose my moral sight,
Courage will always choose what's right.

I give my opinion, speak my mind,
Try hard not to be unkind.
Apologise for a misdeed.
Courage will help me to succeed.

I don't have to follow the crowd,
Courage helps me to feel proud.
Negative thoughts I can ignore,
I take my emotions from my core.

Courage provides faith in my life,
It guides me through the storms and strife.
With courage, I face the unknown,
With God I'll never walk alone.
So be courageous in your skin,
Find your strength from deep within.

It takes more courage for some than others; for some it just comes naturally. I like the line, "With God I'll never walk alone."

"it isn't being fear free." It is a encouraging poem! I am not originaly couragious person, maybe I am too sensitive. "With God I'll never walk alone. So be courageous in your skin, Find your strength from deep within." I believe that we can ask God for courage. Thank you.

I decided to read your first poem on Soup... It's a wonderful one, and one I can relate to. Courage is indeed not to be free of fear. It is more the courage to face each new day and find strength to conquer what it brings.
