With Courage

dragon-warrior-858

With courage I will slay the dragon
That hurls blazing fire into my dreams
Hissing flames, obliterating wishes
Imagined over years, yet so precious
They crumble in the face of terror

With courage I will seek the valley
As he follows, gliding, stalking
And the wisdom of the trees will hold strong
Forged over centuries that no dragon
Could penetrate or break its shield

And when I have amassed the power
Of the ancient woods, collected its
Secrets hidden within the pines and soil
I will rise up the mountain and thrust
Into the leviathan’s heart its final blow

And when he is dead, I will not grieve
Though he had warded away
The other ghouls I could not face
But with courage
I will take the first step
Into the valley of life
Without his shadow

I strongly believe that creativity, and sharing creativity, takes fearlessness — the courage to open the floodgates of passion, expression and emotion that we so often keep pushed deep down.  It’s more than just about producing music, writing or any other piece of art.  It’s about working to gradually break down the walls that prevent you from being who you are.
