"Mirror of Courage", 2021

I tell you of courage, as we all should have
A gamble for the good when all is bad
To apply it to instruments in defiant hands
To see risk later on mock a fearful man

Life is beautiful or not entirely so
Peace be found during anxiety row
When it becomes hard to carry on
Remember to look within for very long

When you are bruised, burned, bashed
Remember the true self as breath be pass
May your past and present be one
Even out of Hell with some teeth gone

When chaos makes it's appearance
Show gratitude to both water and fire
For when the brave draw near it
Strength has embraced mother Gaia

Remember the mirror as spine touches wall
Stand up for yourself when time has called
Keep your pearls, do not box the pigs
Never feel small since they do not think big

When you question do you deserve to live
Remember what you cherish deeply
The mirror reflects all the good you did
No matter who has not seen it. You see.

Let nothing cause you hurtful drain
When you decide to make another change
Be right to live the best way you can
Kindness pays, your path shall pan

Only you know what resonates with you
When confusion enters your search of truth
Show courtesy to the qualified Stoic
The right thing to do you will know it

When prayerful with or without winds
For no flesh shall cover your friends
Be you familiar with Earth again
Many wars have outlasted torn up skin

Courage to you as you newly begin
A protection like bright caverns for gems
Discern whomever the universe sends
Or particular hearts you look to defend

  I appreciate the wisdom here. Reflections do not necessarily require a physical mirror. Perhaps the internal reflections pose less distortion than that which passes through the filters of the world. There's more than a hint of mystic on exhibition here. Gold is a good name. Resonance is good.
