Keep in mind
as you walk down the many roads
a man, woman, trans or child
must walk…

Through all the years and adventures
and tears and harmonies
and dissonance and distractions
that build and break the walls of your resolve
on a regular basis…

As you experience all that you expect from the world
and the many surprises to boot…

Please always remember and never forget
when they call you brave
it is because you probably did something stupid
or shameful
or somehow embarrassing
and the rest of the globe
already knows better.

“Brave” is a code word
for something that is decidedly not.

Know this and maybe
the many roads you walk
will be traveled
with a somewhat lighter step.
