BRAVE

I want to hear you be brave,
Sara Bareilles sang.
I want us to silence
the voices of fear,
the voices which tell us
what we cannot do and
that encourage us to fail.

When we release the fear
that has tortured us
and kept the sunlight
from shining through us.
What if we stopped listening
to the insecure part of self
and were brave.

Brave is about
staring down the enemy
and finding our way out
of the lies and the chains
which keep us in cages of fear.

Brave is about
breaking the silence
and speaking our truth
and letting the world
experience us for the fullness
of who we are.

Brave is about
not caring what others think
when we step out in faith
and express ourselves
to the fullness of who we are.

Brave is about
amazing ourselves
when we release the fear
and speak the words
which have been fighting to
be spoken and heard

Brave is about
us being the spiritual warriors
we were created to be;
the artists of our life
who know how to paint
the life
we were created to live.
If just for today
be brave
