Be Brave

Trouble rains down.  Seeking safety behind mommy’s skirt.  Hiding from troubles rising a foot an hour.  No protection from fear.  Death.  Hiding behind whispers,  “What can I do.”  Hiding under the clear, sunny sky, “it’s not my problem.”  Cowardice!  Hiding behind meager gifts.  Dollars in a bucket.  Towns and lives destroyed!  The flood of pain washes hope away.  Hiding behind a fall of hair.  Hiding.  Watching.  Thinking.  Seeing fear, pain, injustice.    No shelter.  No safety.  Paralyzed.  Cowardice!  Thinking, “Be Brave.”  Stand up.  Face the truth.  Join one voice to another.  Create a chorus for unity, fairness, justice.  Join one to another.  Provide shelter.  Fight for justice.   Build a better world.  Be Brave.



(Prose Poetry:  written like prose using the tools of poetry.   Your critique is requested.  Written in response to the daily prompt, Cowardice, combining elements from recent new.)
