26. Courage

To speak ill of the world

Needs courage,

But fortunately or unfortunately

Everybody has that courage.


To love the world

As one's own,

Very own,

Needs courage.

Unfortunately, most of us are wanting

In that courage.


The courage of the heart,

The courage of the soul

We badly need,

And not the courage

Of the unruly,

Aggressive,

Impure,

Demanding vital.
