courage of another sort

17 Sep

they say to plan it all out
they say to keep an eye on the tide,
they say to stay close to the shore,
but i say you only get one ride…

and oh it’s a deep sea, indeed…
and the reality is some will sink…
but I would rather fall short of stars,
than live my life in mediocrity…

you already have it all! it all!
& in your prime as you will ever be…
you only have one life here anyway…
and it’s a trade worth making…

you can live in the middle 80 years…
or you could make “living” your new career…
ain’t no shame in a few cuts & scrapes here & there..
best thing about loosing it all, is there’s nothing to fear…

i think brave is a term i should reserve for my brother
but there’s another sort of courage, i’d reserve for others…
for those moments when the green zig zag holds it’s beep,
and the man still holds her hand & somehow, his belief…

for the woman who watches her daughter leave home
trusting God will teach & lead her as she goes…
for the priest that leaves his country & loved ones behind
and for all those who refuse to let their hope ever slow…
