You told me you see fear
Fear in my eyes
Pity, its fear you see
For courage it holds
Courage it holds

I know you say,
I deny my fears
No, my dear
For you never will know
I fight my fears
My own little way

Courage, oh dear
Isn’t a trait
It is a choice
The one that you make
When the choice is none

A chapter in my life,
is all that you know
The pages in my book,
have stories to tell
Judge, you may
For a chapter is all
that you have read

Cold, did you call?
Know you must, I say
There was a heart
which once felt too much
Warm, it isn’t
For courage it takes
to feel as much
And feel it does

Proud, am I?
Know you must, I say
There was a child
that once felt no worth
Haughty, ain’t me
For courage it takes
to prove yourself
And prove I did

Withdrawn, did you mean?
Know you must, I say
There was a time
when a shell was home
Extroverted, ain’t me
For courage it takes
to break the shell
And break I did

Haven’t you noticed,
I proclaim my fears
I give it my all
And fight them each day
A battle my own
None but my own

Courage, oh dear
Isn’t a trait
It is a choice
The one that you make
When the choice is none
When the choice is none!
