You Are Not Brave


For all the rejections people trying to slap on you. For still holding to someone who wants to let you go. You are not brave.

For all the expectations that turn out disappointments.

For all the friendships that end up as strangers.

You are not brave.

For the times you think you belong but left out,

For the moment you stand for yourself, coz no one else did.

You are not just brave.

Every time life hits you, I'll tell you,

You're braver than before

For you are a sword that strengthens with the burning rejections and regrets,

And that's what makes you braver than ever before.
