THE COURAGE TO BE
For all our faults and errors, it is we
Who bear the grand responsibility
Of growing into godlings capable
Of more than any individual
Has yet achieved, except a treasured few
Who sanctity and holiness pursue,
Arising to a rare and saintly state
Allowing them to enter Heaven’s gate.
What holds us down, not letting us aspire
To grander ventures and achievements higher
Is sometimes lack of vision, sometimes fear
Making our aspirations disappear.
It’s courage, then, to be all we can be,
By which we’ll reach our full humanity.
