BY CARYL CLEM:
A soldier’s uniform, fire men drowning a fire,
Ambulance sirens screaming, roaring past red lights
Brave workers humbly avoiding spotlights
Common symbols of experiences to inspire.
Courage , a catalyst, shapes determination
Pushing you forward, empowering action
Motivation to fight any battle
Challenging consequences of the struggle.
Courage cleans anger and fear’s pollution
Courage forms pioneers seeking solutions.
Courage wins struggles hidden from view
Healing for a heartbroken victim
Daily doses vital, courage stronger than a vitamin.
Opens doorways to a path to pursue
Selects steps towards achievement
Ending isolation, disappointment
Now , the letter V stands for victory
Courage leads into support, love, a new life story.
