A Thing Called Courage - Poem by Matt Ancient

a thing called courage
it will only open a new page
if i did not cross the oceans
i would have been left alone
i would have been lost
and i wouldn't have seen
what lies beyond the oceans
the road to heaven
is paid with righteousness
for i was lost in the wildness
a thing called courage
that which unleashes you from the cage
the body is just a vehicle
transporting the soul
for there was nobody to love
nobody to console
nobody to talk to
wondering what to do
a thing called courage
it will only open a new page

    a thing called courage
    that which unleashes you from the cage- - A very well written poem.It takes courage to do something worthwhile.We are very often bogged down by fear of failure, or hurdles and do not venture to do something new.Our mind is our store house of energy.There we can motivate ourselves to take the stride Thanks for sharing the beautiful poem.
