Be brave

Be brave
for I love you
and you know
you never stand alone

"black bird singing in the dead of night,
take these broken wings and learn to fly,
all your life,
you were only waiting
for this moment to arise"
(The Beatles)

Be brave
for the sun is shining
and the birds are singing
and I am holding your hand

Be brave
for the night is dark
and can seem lonely long
but the stars are out
and the moon shines on
and always again
comes the dawn

Be brave
in the wind,
stand in the storm,
hear thunder, see lightning, feel rain
don't forever hide away from pain.

for I am here
and hold your hand
and you know
you are never alone

This is so beautiful, Taffiny! I could feel all the strength you're urging in these crisp powerful images. And the photo - excellent!

I feel a bit dumb though, since I am not facing any major crises, just faith in myself issues. But truth is, I do need my pep talks.

But that's exactly the point and the sign of a good imagination - you don't have to necessarily live the experience, you can imagine it. If we were to write only about our own experiences, most of us would be pretty limited.
