PROFILE IN COURAGE

By Mary Burns

 

Embrace that which you fear,

declare a truce with old foes,

for a strength not of your own will sustain you.

 

You need not run away,

you need not hide,

for a strength not of your own will sustain you.

 

Make peace with beginnings and endings,

with the ephemerality of life and of all things,

there is comfort in the cycle of life,

for a strength not of your own will sustain you.

 

Traverse a void as vast as the universe,

seeking answers,

only to find they reside within you,

for the strength not of your own has sustained you.
