Poem: I've Witnessed Bravery

I’ve Witnessed Bravery

I’ve witnessed bravery,
bending to power
without breaking,
smiling at injustice,
 knowing truth will prevail,
I’ve witnessed bravery,
laying down its sword,
allowing words to smite its foes,
rising without armor,
risking harm yet standing firm,

 I’ve witnessed bravery,
caught in a swirling eddy,
seeking light where darkness lurks,
finding solace in a song
hoping God will hear,

 I’ve witnessed bravery,
and it has humbled me,
for it resides in the heart
of a friend.
