The pitfalls of masculine pride, alcohol and focus on winning rather than people are communicated to a young man who I like, but who I think might be clouded in his judgment and held back from his potential as a person by same.

True Courage and Courage True go out to young men closer to me than any other.

Lombardi is about winning
He is also about giving all you have
I am about person regardless of success
He and I agree about focus and forget about the rest
history holds secrets and keys
focus inward and you will see

it is the like the catch you can make
and Marcela sees in you
less the bravado and grain you can intake
framed visions of book and shoe
things of knowledge and strength
combined with qualities of the inner world
to make you the magnet and oyster
universe transforms to nano and pearl

True Courage

you oft believe your fists, testicles or chest give measure of confidence and courage

assistance is here to put stick to fable

youthful wisdom takes blame for ignorance of a true heart

there is no doubt none that heart and faith are the only buttress to spine

for only strong in belief and emotion can stand to all

fooled are those that believe anger can be this base as only love survives time

anger sustained is doomed to fester or ruin with regret soon to follow

Love can sustain and consume all fear

eye can see a mother protecting her son

so young man lock your balls in your heart

and put your faith in those that love you

grow your love and fearless will become you

Courage True

hardest thing I ever did was admitting I was wrong

I said I didn't did it

the thing I can't admit

I remember the effort it took to admit it to myself

I kept saying I did it for this I did it for that I had good reason I had good cause

all of it was true to a degree, but the whole truth I could not swallow

I was afraid

I would be bored I would be shamed I would be weak I would be scorned I would be homo

I would be known I would feminine I would be trapped I would be owned I would be me

fear causes everyone need for falsity to self and to other, but anon the wise one learns this fear is an ignorance that cannot be tolerated

much true happiness comes from being one's true self and allowing that person to be worthy of love

lies and dishonor, shame, regret all prolonged are cancer malignant and spreading

death and disease persist at the heart where candor does not rise up to lead

defend the lie, but only when pure heart defends it too for the first victim will always be you
