More than a Word, a sentiment
That can hold me back
From moving ahead from the present
The maybes of life´s always hold me back
And those same ones are the ones I can´t forget
I look at them filled with regret
Courage, more than a word, an action
That can drive us far
From the unpleasant spot we are
The possibilities of life are always alluring and wide
And those same ones are the ones the world can´t hide
I look at them with a special glow in my eyes
More than a sentiment, or an action
A prophecy written by destiny
I can´t help but wonder
How can it be
Two distinct things such as
Courage and insecurity
Walk together hand in hand
In one´s life
I think it´s part of the cycle
It´s the rights and wrongs
The days and nights
The victories and fights
Of one journey
Called life

    Dear Nina-
    I read through a few of your poems but liked this one best-
    The sentiment and direction was descriptional enough for me to follow.
    Life is garden that we either allow to be over run with weeds or
    to flourish with beauty we blosem and display. A nice thought these words
    left me with after reading this.
    A true sign of how well the writer connected their words together.
