Because it is lost in time and space…

Courage

‘Give me courage’, he said.
How do we receive courage?

Is it within us all the time and we find it when faced with our fears?
Is it grown stronger by more trials and are we only able to get more of it by experiencing more hardship, however we view hardships definition, so to face more of our fears?

We ask for courage to face fear, yet only facing it brings it about.

A child fallen, cries.
A child fallen thrice, smiles, lip quivering
Knowing – this too shall pass.

Ambitious Hope

Sorry to piss on the parade
of flowers and sunshine,
but for some poor bastards
life doesn’t miraculously work out
no matter how hard-working
how smart, or how positive.

Often it is the luck of the
socioeconomic landscapes
birthing humanity.

The Life Between

Am I between?
Reams of white waiting to be touched by colour.
The ink of souls, a screen with the word ‘Title’
Asks to frame a life in a question and answer.

The stroke of a brush, seeking to speak
What cannot be said with the few words humanity grasps at.

The twang and twinge of a string strung across wood
Nailed ungracefully, chimes take symphonic stock
Of days and nights where empty and full are nothing and everything
We are between.

We want to know who and why we are, and all we are is breath
Between life and death.
