Bravery

To create beauty
knowing
it will all fade

To reach out to others
even when encountering
indifference or hate

To uphold core principles
whether you're ridiculed or praised

Is that not as as brave
as marching towards cannons
or volleys of bullets or flames?

In either case, what's needed is
"outcome-aloofness"
& willingness to fall flat on ones face
for a noble aim

Bravery is not merely for soldiers –
it's for all who value integrity

Resolution is not just in warfare –
but for each undertaking
