Bravery, a concept of strange humanity
Is it real, does it even pertain to me?
Myth, legend, flaw of the human brain
Something some feel is the need to gain.
Impressions for one, can show who you are
Dirty, sad things, which can leave a great scar.
Confidence you see, an effect of this thing
Which we call bravery, real sadness it may bring.
Bravery like a mask, hides your true being
Capturing who you once were, no signs of its freeing.
So before you describe a person as brave
Think, decide, and know the effect it may have.
