Writing Wednesday – Courage

Throughout the month of September we will showcasing some of the work created by the Vision Norfolk Creative Writing Group.


This week we have the poem ‘Courage’ by Judith Manning.


by Judith Manning


Courage is doing something that scares you.

Do it

Not because someone dares you.

Do it

Not because someone cares if you don’t.

Do it

Not because someone gets hurt if you won’t.

Do it for you,

For your self esteem

For your mental health,

Do it.

Do it.

Just for yourself.
