I am brave,

I have to be…

The world calls it out of me.

With a heart that feels so strongly, I must hold the reigns tightly.

Tighter than most. I buckle down and accept a great deal of unchangeable things. 

I am brave because I love regardless of whats given or thought of me.

I am brave because I venture past control and knowing.

I am brave for knowing my worth regardless of a circumstance.

I am brave for feeling when it is scary.

Often it is very scary.

I am brave for being myself, for dreaming for hoping.

Because these three things can bring so very much pain.

I am brave…
