Courage up the Sleeve

Blissed out under the sun

with a new wave forming in the distance

Ready to catch the tide

and return to the conscious space of pure thankfulness

Thankful for the flow and the flux

the highs and the lows

Happy to have survived the fallout

because the grass is now getting greener

I sold my soul cheap

but was able to earn it back

through humility and surrender

to a power much greater

than any dark force or worldly institution

I gave into the desires of the flesh

thinking that vices could bring me joy

but then was shown that virtues

of the heart, mind, and soul

can always trump any negative hand on the table

Building back up after being beaten down

and looking forward to the next challenge

because it is the tests which life brings on

that help us become the best person possible

if we only are willing to face them head on with courage

and allow the lessons to truly sink in deep
