The Power That Will Guide
Fearlessness does not change upon the odds.
It is not the stubbornness we have gained,
Nor is it why we continue to plod,
But reason for us to pull off our chains.
Courage is not courage we need to seek.
Courage is but the power that will guide
Us up against the fears which make us weak
To fight for the loved ones upon our side.
For courage is a weird and foolish thing,
Which makes us place others above ourselves,
Allowing us to take down what life brings,
No matter what horror we find that dwells.
If courage is not this within our lives,
Then courage is not what we use to thrive.
