What Is Courage?


Standing up for what is right,
Who bullies,
Who laughs,
You do not.
Instead of watching,
You stand up.
Your courage shines bright,
Stopping wrong,
Defending right.

You are one of the few.
If only there were more,
But you are courageous,
For many reasons.
You are courageous,
Because others cannot do what you do.
So do not stop doing what should be done,
Even if there are very few.
You are courageous.

Let all others see you,
Adore you and act as you do,
In order for others to be saved.
