Moral courage

MoralCourage

“Moral courage is a more rare commodity
Than bravery in battle or great intelligence”
It seems to be for most people an oddity
Because what they want takes at any time precedence

Only few people will stand up for what is right
And know where they belong in time, space or dimension
The rare who will criticize and put up a fight
Who don’t seem to care about adapt or convention

There are those who are doing what has to be done
Some say they are heroes but they will say they are not
It is just that they have fearlessly overwon
The terrifying cleverness of the gordian knot

Against all odds, they will continue to protect
And they stand up for the vulnerable and the weak
Whatever they do, they always earn our respect
Because the sanctuary of our world is unique

 

“Moral courage is a more rare commodity
Than bravery in battle or great intelligence”
