Random Poem:

It Takes A Certain Courage

let me brave myself for another day
for i am convinced that out there somewhere is a moment of peace
worthy of all the pangs in the pile
let me have the strength to bear this body
this face
this soul
for i have no options for others
and i am not ready to give up on the beauty
just yet
give me the clarity to look into the night sky
and see how small i juxtapose against it
but let me bask in the sheer enormity of my heart
