Clover Poetry Series: Learning to Be Brave
"Here's to the Brave" was inspired by entering a season of life where I was surrounded by new: New people, new career path, and new desires stirring in my heart. And through all of it, it was my community of other brave women that supported and pushed me in love.
"Here's to The Brave"
They say that it’s best
To live outside the box.
But all you can attest
Is the sound from inside when it locks.
To live in one
To abide by its norms.
You want out; to have won;
Yet avoid all the storms.
You begin this new route
An exploration of the brave.
In search for your roots
You know there is not time to waste.
To a future you cannot comprehend.
Then there with you on the ledge...
