Courage Poems by Teens

Poems about Strength

Courage demands respect. Courage can be found in all areas of life, it doesn't matter where you are and who you are. To be courageous is to stand tall against powerful force. Even a young person without hope can have courage and dare to be different, to dream and to change, and perhaps to teach and be an inspiration to others through their example.
