Misplaced Missive #198 – Believe

So much spirit for trivial things,
When nothing is risked,
When what could be lost,
Will never be missed.

But when it’s real – when it is important –
Suddenly, the view is distorted,
And you have no faith left for it.
Where is your courage?

I believe you to be brave.
I know you to be strong.
This fear does not belong,
And does not become you.

I wish I could give you,
My perception of you.
Gift wrap it like a present,
Willingly given with the intent,
Of cementing your vision;
Of fueling your fire;
Of sacrificing a bit of self
So you never neglect what you’re capable of.

So much spirit for trivial things,
When nothing is risked,
When what could be lost,
Will never be missed.

I believe in you.
But you should believe in you.
Not because I do,
But because you’re amazing,
And it is natural to do.
