What Is Courage?

Courage is bravery
Courage is strong
Courage is fighting dragons
Or riding all night long.
Through the snowstorms
Through the wind
Cut through thorns
To battle within.
But why, might I ask, is this the stereotype?
Can’t you be courageous
Without muscles or armor
Without having to fight?
Depends on the person,
But if you ask the right one,
Then your answer is yes.
But wait, we’re not done.
To be courageous,
I said with a grin
You don’t need to fight,
You can always depend on
My chest to lay on.
My arms will enclose you
Encircle and embrace you.
My hands will caress you
With the softest touch
You are delicate, so delicate
Like a bubble
Or a child’s mood.
You can be broken or popped
Zooming or stopped.
My warm sunny skin
Bright and clean
And my face, shining with light,
And full of meaning.
‘’Come to me’’
I beg you
I can’t stand your sorrow
Your suffering, your darkening
You dismiss me, ‘’Tomorrow’’
Stop leaving me hanging
Come now, and come ready
You need my love, and I need yours
When you fall, I will steady.
Please child, do not fear
My heart is open to your sins,
Your confessions
Your regrets
Your despairs and repairs
Your sadness and mourning
Or even to win.
To be courageous,
To truly be brave
You need to have confidence,
Discipline, and behave.
You need chastity and chivalry
Honesty and integrity
Forgiveness and love
Compassion and mercy.
You need to know yourself
Know your enemies and friends.
This next one may be difficult,
But you need to love them to all ends.
Be gentle and tender
Be generous and kind
Be creative and clever,
And have a keen mind.
Accept advice and instructions
Guidance and directions
Be polite but stern
Be sturdy and firm
Be considerate and caring
Cautious but daring
Acute and aware
Observant and fair
Go on your way
For just a day
Or maybe a year
To go face your fears
Either way,
I need not say
When in a predicament
Or in fault or doubt
Look to Father and the Son
That’s what this is all about.
Let me repeat that,
I think it’s so strong.
Look to the Father.
And the Son.
They know, they care
For everyone.

Courage isn't a brilliant dash,
A daring deed in a moment's flash;
It isn't an instantaneous thing
Born of despair with a sudden spring
It isn't a creature of flickered hope
Or the final tug at a slipping rope;
But it's something deep in the soul of man
That is working always to serve some plan.

Courage isn't the last resort
In the work of life or the game of sport;
It isn't a thing that a man can call
At some future time when he's apt to fall;
If he hasn't it now, he will have it not
When the strain is great and the pace is hot.
For who would strive for a distant goal
Must always have courage within his soul.

Courage isn't a dazzling light
That flashes and passes away from sight;
It's a slow, unwavering, ingrained trait
With the patience to work and the strength to wait.
It's part of a man when his skies are blue,
It's part of him when he has work to do.
The brave man never is freed of it.
He has it when there is no need of it.

Courage was never designed for show;
It isn't a thing that can come and go;
It's written in victory and defeat
And every trial a man may meet.
It's part of his hours, his days and his years,
Back of his smiles and behind his tears.
Courage is more than a daring deed:
It's the breath of life and a strong man's creed.

MacGregor's Gathering

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!

Our signal for fight, that from monarchs we drew,
Must be heard but by night in our vengeful haloo!
Then haloo, Grigalach! haloo, Grigalach!
Haloo, haloo, haloo, Grigalach!

Glen Orchy's proud mountains, Coalchuirn and her towers,
Glenstrae and Glenlyon no longer are ours;
We're landless, landless, landless, Grigalach!
Landless, landless, landless, Grigalach!

But doom'd and devoted by vassal and lord,
MacGregor has still both his heart and his sword!
Then courage, courage, courage, Grigalach!
Courage, courage, courage, Grigalach!

If they rob us of name, and pursue us with beagles,
Give their roofs to the flame, and their flesh to the eagles!
Then vengeance, vengeance, vengeance, Grigalach!
Vengeance, vengeance, vengeance, Grigalach!

While there's leaves in the forest, and foam on the river,
MacGregor despite them, shall flourish for ever!
Come then Grigalach, come then Grigalach,
Come then, come then, come then Grigalach!

Through the depths of Loch Katrine the steed shall career,
O'er the peak of Ben Lomond the galley shall steer,
The rocks of Craig-Royston like icicles melt,
Ere our wrongs be forgot, or our vengeance unfelt!
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Sir Walter Scott

Its only a bend

Stocks tumbling, markets mumbling
Bonds lost the sheen too.
Its takes lot of courage to pass through.

Sheets bleeding for the balance investors still sitting on fence...
Catch a breath oh little you,
Its takes lot of courage to pass through.

Bulls are dead, bears rule
Only hopes for the greater fool
A pig got slaughtered, was it u
Its takes lot of courage to pass through.

Earnings deplete, disaster complete
Fishes fly and the credit dry
The bankers don't even listen to......
Its takes lot of courage to pass through.

Terror strikes, time 2 move 2 bikes
How often do u look at skies...
There's someone up there
But I just forgot.... Who
Its takes lot of courage to pass through.

Times r tuff n the terrain rough
America’s got cold with the cuff
We should actually sneeze too
Its takes lot of courage to pass through.

Valuations are great, P/E close to 8
Time to buy n hold it long
To stand tall and stay strong
My Son-just watch the historical trend.....
Almighty jus called to say....
It’s only a bend, not the end.

5th December 2008
(This was written at the peak of subprime crisis and life for a financial services guy was getting tougher by the microsecond.)
