Poetry: Courage

a storm forming
a storm forming

Courage in parable.


When I say honor, you respond respect



Out of nowhere came the storm.

Bursting on to the sea,

Like the elements had gone mad.

Mountainous waves tossed the boat,

Like a leaf caught in the grip of a giant wind.

Up and down she goes,

Leaning first to one side,

And then to the other,

Fighting violently to stay alive,

Her courage showed no bounds.

The storm raged on,

The boat fought like a lion,

Nothing would sink her.

Suddenly, as quickly as she came,

The storm left and all was well.
