What is courage? What defines a courageous act? It is said that the brave and cowardly person are both fearful. However, it is the brave one who faces his fear and does what needs to be done. We will be faced with many things that scare us throughout our lives. How can we become the kind of people that face our fear and do it anyway? Human growth takes place when we take small steps. Each time we face our fears we become more of the courageous person that we would like to be.

When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to comfort you,
please know that I still love you,
cause I know you love me too....
I'm an atheist and I often contemplate death and its implications, scared to death of not knowing what happens after. According to my personal beliefs I know that death is the end but I hope...
Sometimes we see things that aren't meant to be seen.
Sometimes things aren't always as they seem.
Sometimes we need someone to call our own,
Especially when we're alone....
This poem was very heart touching and very descriptive. It is about the lack of hope and courage they have in themselves.
A hero to me is not just a person who died for their country
or went inside a burning building or stuff like that.
A hero to me is a single mother who survives every day by herself,
