An Illusion - Poem by George Aul
If you walk ahead there may be scorn,
but if you follow-a coward is always born;
standing in front takes a great deal of risk,
and the reviews you get will always be mixed.
Courage is born out of most desperate times,
when life isn't easy and nearly everyone whines;
being tired and disgusted is all it will take,
to turn a lamb into a lion, and hear the earth shake.
The strength to stand when you hear them chuckle,
takes no more skill than tightening a buckle;
for cowards run when real strength is needed,
and the right of way is then always heeded.
So don't give up and take it on the run,
when you're so close to touching the sun;
the prize is everything there can be in life,
stand tall and straight in the face of strife.
