Without Courage

Without courage I walk out into a cold,
cruel world
It takes guts, I once heard someone say and I have to wonder,
whose guts?
I am afraid that time has robbed me of that fearless,
conquering youth.
As worries about broken bones, injuries and lost time at work prevail,
courage fails.
I become afraid, forget courage and convince myself it is simply
mature caution.
