Employ Courage poem

Employ Courage

Employ courage.
If you do, it will work for you.
Don’t overthink it or you’ll be stuck.
You have everything you need to take action.
Relish the spontaneity of thought and idea.
Try what you’ve never tried before.
Be prepared to make a mess.
Fling yourself forward.
Be willing to fail.
Pursue unknowns.
Stay curious.
Embrace mistakes–
after all,
now you know better.
You are progressing.
It’s not always about
a perfect result,
but what you can learn.
Welcome discovery.
Unfold unexpected liberties.
They were already there
waiting to be revealed.
Play among uncharted uncertainties.
Explore the farthest frontier.
Adventure forth, frolicking.
Cast off trepidation.
Brook no excuses.
Hire an honest hope.
Saddle up originality.
Let it carry you, galloping free.
And more than anything else,
be more brave.
