Emotions build a giant mass of towering obstruction

blocking off the sun, the air; the rigid, reassuring reminder of reality;

not allowing the usual broad-minded deduction

that the eye within the spirit can clearly see.


Courage – so easy to speak of this concept of fortitude;

the display – not so simple, is it now?

The presence of which in one’s context may elude,

the elusion of which we should not allow.



have courage, my friends.

We can stand strong and stable and face anything.

We can face any challenge any situation may bring;

for we are not aware…

we have forgotten

that we are powerful beyond imagination.
