Courage and Fortitude of the Heart

Let us sit quietly and close our eyes
tuning in to our heartbeat

How bold it is as it pulsates
and offers us life from within

It has no fear or anger
it is only fed that from the brain

Let us visit the brain for a moment
and feel the frenzied expression of it

This is where we shut ourselves down
and in the moment we feel fear not courage

Our heart closes down and we pull away
from our ability to love each other openly

Let us learn to live from deep within our heart
and strengthen our courage and fortitude

Loving each other without the hesitation
or the distorted interference of our brains
