This is for you, Muse
We spoke often of Plato and the Athenian generals:
What is bravery?
What is courage ?
Bravery: doing what we must despite overwhelming fear
Courage: the ability to extract fear, look at and understand it
Now, no longer theory, discussion.
I will show you, Muse,
model, how we deal with fear.
For there is no doubt
the danger is great, the fear is real
What we learn
depends upon how this is lived
not just spoken.
This is for you, for your tomorrows.
