Something Rare

By Naomi TyhurstPublished 2 months ago 1 min read
Burn Bright

All people have fear

But courage is uncommon

For it is fleeting

In an adversary's face

And shown through the choice you make

If you can stand up

When it is the most crippling

You build your own strength

It is not a performance

It is what you can become

While fear stops the heart

and your hands start to tremble

Courage is not felt

It's in the action one takes

Even knowing they may fail

Fear may be painful

It may make others hurt you

But when it's darkest

You can burn brighter than the

Binary stars, unbroken.
