She was never quite ready.
But she was brave
and the universe listens to brave.
~ Rebecca Ray
The universe may listen to brave,
but mostly, it turns a deaf ear,
laughs in your face
and sends you packing.
the world doesn’t reward brave,
doesn’t reimburse you for your troubles,
doesn’t acknowledge the courage it took
to step out on your own,
to forage for food and find your own way.
the world is … short-sighted.
set up to fail brave people.
that’s what it’s always done
to the prophets who warned
against prevailing opinions.
God didn’t make me the world’s kind of brave,
didn’t make you the world’s kind of brave.
God made us God’s kind of brave.
to help others find courage,
to point others to capability,
to invest in the good in others,
Because that brave lasts.
The universe resonates with that brave.
