Attaining mastery

Being brave is a decision

Bravery requires vulnerability

Combined with

A silent acknowledgement

That you may be hurt, or ignored

Kindness can be an act of bravery

And can sometimes result in

The deepest kind of hurt or

Ignorant rejection

Brave souls understand this

It’s easy to be kind

To kind people

Being kind to the unkind

Or to the downright hateful

That takes a type of bravery

That I may never master

E.A. Fussell
