am I brave
or merely a fool?

some abandon must be
a part of the risk-taking--

or are the brave thus
if they are prepared

or fools if they are not--and
which accepts the verdict gracefully?

I couldn't say--
my hands are empty

from foolishly trying to hold bravery
but my heart continues full

bravely accepting what it is
to play the fool--
