courage, honor

Courage is a hard thing to figure

You can have courage based on a damn idea or a mistake

But you are not supposed to question adults,

or your coach, or your parents, or your teachers;

because they make the rules.

Maybe they know best, or maybe they don’t.

It all depends on who you are, where you come from.

Did at least one of you think about giving up and joining with the other side?

I mean the valley of death; that’s pretty salty stuff.

That’s why courage is tricky.

Should you always do what others tell you to do?

Sometimes you might not even know why you doing something.

I mean any fool can have courage;

But honour, that’s the real reason you either do something or you don’t.

It’s who you are; and maybe who you want to be.

If you die trying for something important,

Then you have both HONOUR and COURAGE;
