poem of courage


The fear of night, of black and grey,
Must never steal your heart away.
When you face your fear, just say,
'My heart is mine; it will not stray.'

When danger lifts its evil head
And fill your heart with chills and dread,
Just say, before all strenght has fled,
'My heart will go where I have led, '

For fear is not a thing of shame,
It comes upon each person's frame
And lights the heart with strenght and flame,
If you its power can but tame.


This is a poem i like very much, but regrettably this poem was not writen by me.I found this poem in a storybook name Dragonback Adventure bk 2 or 5, i forgot.
