Capturing The Wild Horse Of Courage

Rating: 4.5

Tell me how to overcome this fear
And I will listen and memorise every word.
Point to me the easy solution
But remind me that all great things need courage.

I am afraid of rejection,
Please say that I might be missing True love
And that access to happiness
is not given with out a struggle.
Convince me to hear the weak voice inside me
And not the loud one that is always there,
Help me to become a better listener of myself.

Protect me from comments that
I really don’t need to hear,
Teach me not to be influenced
By people that are more willing to judge
Than understand,
Take my hand and lead me to the pathway
That deep inside I know I should follow.

Blow courage into my face
Until I open my eyes..

Fear is a useful tool if you now how to make it function in your favor. as I read this I reflected on a phrase I'm constantly repeating, not only to myself but to others as well. ' because I have not been brave' they say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, maybe if we admit we are not as courageous as we'd like to be, we can overcome it....good poem always, Amberlee

You're a giving person, now I hope you will be a receiving person and get the courage you desire and deserve, always believe in yourself.

I think you're after the right things, Ivy. And you're asking/articulating in a clear voice. That's a good start, I think!
