Who am I to speak of courage?

When I have always been known as meek and weak

I have always been perceived as fragile and frail

I have always been thought of as passive and submissive.


So what right do I have really to talk about courage?

When all they see of me is that of a coward’s image…

But I know of it, yes I do!

I talk of it, I speak of it

This– I say is courage!


I walk- I sit; I wake up- I sleep;

I dream and hold on to it

Sometimes I lose my grip of it.

I sing and dance; I laugh and cry

I run and hide; I climb and fall

I believe, I trust; I have faith – I hold hope

I work and rest; I take pride – I accept defeat


I am not a good poet

But I write a poem about courage

And that alone is courage…

You see, everything I do has always been –

an act of courage!

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
