courage doesn't come
from the fibers you're
born with.  You aren't
brave when you decide
to be.

when you wake
up in the bed
smeared with your
own self destruction
and you act as though
you aren't crumbling
into the carpet.

or when you hold
a piece of shrapnel
to your veins and
want to sever every last
one, but you throw it
out the window.

or when you stand
on the sunset
with clouds straddling
your mind and your
whole existence ready
to hurl itself over the
railing, but you limp
home and through the screen
door and pretend to walk
on air again.

That is bravery.
