Courage. What makes a King out of a slave? Courage. What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage. What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage. What makes the Sphinx the 7th Wonder? Courage. What makes the dawn come up like THUNDER?! Courage. What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in ape-ricot?

COURAGE. (wizard of oz’s Lion)

i finally got what i didnt think i got. courage.

ee cummings once said, “it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” and he was right. it takes courage to leave the one you thought was your soulmate, after you found out that there are things you don’t necessarily like about them. tattoos, nasty habits, being a spoiled princess. not only does it take courage to leave that person you thought was the one but wasnt, but it takes courage to realize those flaws and tiny “urks” can not be overlooked. but in order to become who you are, you have to focus on yourself, which takes courage.

they give a purple heart for the highest medal of honor, to show people that you have a strong sense of courage that is hard to come across. my grandfather had one. purple for the color of royalty, because our leaders are supposed to have courage. to lead us through the darkness into the light without being scared to look back through the tunnel. like i said, courage is hard to come across, but we tend to respect the people who possess the unobtainable quality. are you born with courage? do hard life times cause one to be more courageous? perhaps. maybe loving someone then having your heart broken gives you a little. or maybe leave said loved ones then you have more courage when you come out on the other side. (which you always will do – come out on the other side.)

i would love to have more courage. i want to be able to be inpendent and finally truly single, no strings attached, and no be already looking for someone else. i was to have courage so i have be unafraid of being alone, and instead cherish this time strictly spent thinking about myself.  i want to relish in my selfishness because for the first time in two years i can. thats beautiful. yet i am scared to tred water without holding on to the side of the pool. for the first time in two years i am in the center of nothing but myself.

i need to find me some more courage.
