We are all brave

By Simone Scarlett

Why look back?
Look forward, always
But not too far ahead

One foot in front
Of the other
How easily we forget how to walk

I don’t know what to be
I’m afraid to be

And yet  I am what I am
And what I am
Is everything

Life is passing me by
As I ponder the why why why’s
Of my soul

I’m missing everything
While trying not to miss

We always come back to the beginning
Why so ashamed?
It’s only life

The truth
Is becoming harder and harder
To hide

I don’t want to wear my heart
On my sleeve
And my soul
In my purse

Yes, we are all brave...
