Courage

a Poem by Raquel Swann

You searched 

under the bed 

it was empty.

Looked in a closet 

full of clothing and shoes,

yet found nothing.

Ransacked cabinets 

and drawers

crevices and cracks

dusty boxes in the attic

looted with memories.

Courage can only

be found within

your soul.

Be afraid

no longer.
