What does it require to be brave?
Does it mean putting up a strong front when faced with slashing giants
Does it mean forgetting the past
Letting go of the resentments
Accepting, and smiling at the scars
Loving the enemies
Loving even the blows they have inflicted upon us?
What does it require to be brave
If I let nothing bother me
If I smile even when faced with monsters
Does it make of me a brave soul?
Why, having come to terms with the fact that
Life revolves upon nothingness
Having come to terms that nothing here
Has a meaning
Why, I have learnt to let go
I have learnt to forgive
I have learnt to love
To smile, to sprinkle my warmth
To spread the cause of what I deem as being good
To be, as soothing as the dew
On the thirsting grass
To be, as calming as a piano tune
To the ears of those in love
To be, as comforting as religion
To those who find not their place here!
Why, to be brave
Does not require me to have a loud voice
Or strong hands
Or glaring eyes
To be brave
Requires me to be still and smooth
When faced with monsters!
Bravery, a much needed attribute
Specially when here, only the fittest do march on!
