Bravery

You encouraged me right when I wasn’t I should do this.
I took your words and pressed them to my frantic heart.
You reminded me that bravery is allowed
And bravery has its own rewards.

So I opened up and pour out what was hidden and packed away.
In doing so I discovered so much about myself.
If you had never said those few words I may not have continued.
My bravery may have been left sitting on the floor.

But you did, so I did as well.
I’m ever so glad.
I really am grateful for you
And my bravery is too.


Dedicated to my first few poetry Cheerleaders. Your encouraging words helped me push on and realise I had something worth sharing. I am so grateful for you. To those of you who read my words today, I am truly humbled and appreciate your encouragement more than you know 💜

ANNOUNCEMENT: I anticipate taking a break from WP for the rest of December. If I ‘disappear’ for a few weeks, I am wishing you a Merry Christmas and I’ll ‘see’ you in the New Year.

      1. You cannot know how happy I am that you “heeded” the encouragement from your cheerleading supporters to be Brave and to Believe and press forward!! I think I signed onto that letter from the team! When you hear that voice in your head you just need to get used to saying, “Shhhh”!

        Hope you had a great New Year’s Eve! Hope your Muse pays you a New Year’s Day visit!!
