I Want to be Brave

“We don’t need words – we need RESULTS!”

“How will anyone believe you when you don’t even live right?”

“You’re only a seed, and we’re more grown than you, so we can’t really learn from what you have to say.”

“You’re in no position to share any truth.”

I’m always being held back, with a shaky barely-there confidence, and other than that, a discovery of truth that I’d like to be serious about. These words, while no one has really told me, weighs me down like crazy. I wish I could just live, like everyone else, ignoring all these and making it all right. But I can’t. Though, I want to. Why am I still being held back? Why can’t I just run towards the light, shake away the doubt and be brave, be grounded on what I know is true. There are so many good things I’d like to do, but then, I know others would think those are crazy, and starting a rebellion has its consequences. Besides, I’m not independent yet. Is this why I’m feeling down?…

God, help me keep the fight. This is your fight too, anyway. Help me know what I have to do and give me the support to be able to get there..

I want to be brave.
