(XIX) Courage

No voice can breathe
The tender emnity
Of colliding words
Hidden beneath
Fighting to speak
Scarred thoughts cut deep
Through the human necks
Tenuous sheath

A violent heart
Will never beat
Within a body
Labeled this weak

The blade of your heart
Is but an illusion of the mind
No baby is born
With a heart as a knife

Assurance is key.

The heart needs a beat
To find the courage to breathe

A voice doesn't speak
While weaving its sheath

The courage to speak.
