Courage or Cowardice


 
Courage left me long ago;
     it left me in the cold.
No one wants to lead me back;
     no one has been so bold.
 
To softly take my hand in theirs,
     and lead me off the ice.
Taking me to safety’s shore,
     so I may live my life.
 
So I look back at my young self;
     innocence to blinding bright,
and realize I don’t fear the dark;
     I only fear the light.
