509. I leave and I take

I leave my fears inside my room,
I take my courage when I go out.

I leave my pride inside my room,
I take my humility when I go out.

I leave my despair inside my room,
I take my hope when I go out.

I leave my darkness inside my room,
I take my illumination when I go out.
