I wrote this poem a while ago when I was feeling scared. And the more I wrote, the more I began to feel brave. Perhaps this poem will help you feel brave, too.
“Today I Feel Brave”
Sometimes I feel small,
Today I honor creativity.
We are transcendent.
Sometimes I feel lonely.
Today the Stardust in me honors the Stardust in you.
We are kin.
Sometimes I feel confused.
Today I rest in the ebb and flow of life.
We are held.
Sometimes I feel deprived.
I accept today’s gifts of beauty and pain.
We are wealthy.
Sometimes I am angered by injustice.
Today I speak and work for liberation.
We are overcomers.
Sometimes I am scared.
Today I trust I will have what I need for today.
Today I feel brave.
