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,
    Demanding vital.
