This is powerful. Just some words, and you see a whole lot of situation, the perception and finally you make the bold decision and go the harder way. Liked it so much.Thanks.
thanks Monika. i'm glad you liked this poem. Sometimes i'm reluctant to post the very short ones because they don't feel like "real poems".
Good one, Victoria! Strong message..
I like this very much Victoria--you might want to check for typos!
I think there are times when it is foolish to jump in, not brave. I don't mean the poem as a definition of courage, just a description in some circumstances. I agree with my friend Peggy, that there is no courage if there is no fear, so all jumps aren't brave. And I think sometimes the brave thing is to simply abide.
Wow, 11 words and they say so much, Victoria!
