Courage comes in many ways
some we see,
others hide, they steal our days.

A fight
a challenge
a tree to climb,
just be brave
take your time.

But threats appear
in subtle ways,
we do not see
their form for days,
years go by
we cannot see,
how much we lost
no longer free.

Should have walked away
not stay,
in situations
that make us pay,
in lives we lost
along the way.

Move on
we feel our heart to say,
but fear gets
in our way,
the devil we know
he makes us stay.

We'll never know
the lives we lost,
had we the courage
to leave the nest,
to take a risk to do what's right,
when we had the chance
to put it right.

Instead we chose
the easy option,
stick around and play it safe
needed comfort,
not escape.

But do not be too hard
on yourself for too long,
in the end
it's not our fault,
we needed somewhere to belong.
