It Takes Courage


it takes courage to say life goes on
without knowing where you might end

it takes a lot of courage to achieve what
you want to be in life

it takes more courage to forgive
someone that hurt you

it takes more courage to make a tough decision
when you know you might end up paying consequences

it take more than courage
to be responsible and honest

it takes more than what you call courage
to be a real man! !

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
