A Craven’s Courage

The power of a direct decision is that it carves up cowardice.
Don’t worry about being brave, being bold is a short-term scare
Far more frightening to hold back

Suffering in silence
Letting so many thoughts flow while real possibilities dwindle
Be a coward, be scared enough to take the jump

You will fall sometimes
But hitting the ground is better than hanging off the edge
And who knows? More often than not going for it gives you gifts

Even if the reward is earth or a firm answer
Cold and true memories are better to sleep with at night
Compared to sleeping with the needle stings of indecision.

Be brave, and all the best.
J.W.H. Hobbs
