Year 2: Day 49 – It Doesn’t Take Much (To Feel Brave)

Charlotte Cuevas

Crumpling up your work
is about as daring
as wearing sneakers
without socks,

but it doesn’t take much
to feel brave.

Driving two hours out of town
just for lunch
is about as daring
as staying home
on a Friday night,

but it doesn’t take much
to feel brave.

Debating politics online
is about as daring
as raising your hand in church,

but it doesn’t take much
to feel brave.

Having an opinion
is about as daring
as calling yourself an activist,
as puffing yourself up
about making a difference,

but it doesn’t take much
to feel brave.
