The Courage To Be Born

Chapter 10: The Secret Life of Stone

I am waiting for the courage to be born
Into the follies experienced each and every morn,
The pain, the struggle, the blood, sweat and fears.
Or will I come to cherish the taste of my own tears?
Just a little bit longer before prying myself out,
I promise I will do it, just not right now.
