Brave is not the painted face of a brazen warrior tall
It’s more the paint that hides the tears of women feeling small
Courage isn’t facing foes with muscles rippling taut
It’s more about the difficult things you do because you ought 
Brave is not the proud explorer nor the mighty mountaineer 
It’s someone unsung doing that hard thing because it’s here
Quiet courage, faces misery deep and looks into its eyes 
Defeats her fears for years and years. Although inside she cries
