A Dedication of Courage

I actually never seem to remember when and why I wrote this poem, but it is still one I return to often, for various reasons. 

For all the times I've backed out


changed my mind

and talked myself out of it.

For all the places I've never gone

things I've never done

or said.

For all of the fear


and regret.

For all of these things.

May you be redeemed by one statement

one action

one moment that changes everything.

May you not have the last word.
