‘courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.’

while the kinders were playing a farm game
with crops and cash,
i thought all were farmers
until one came to me
“she doesn’t want to be a farmer. she said she’s a jedi warrior!
that means she’ll be stronger than all of the rest of us!”
i told him that jedi and farmers are both very strong people.
both work hard and refuse to give up.
both try to do things peacefully.
they could work together with no problem.
they would be good for each other.
they would help each other.
even a jedi has to eat.
even a farmer has to stand up and be brave.
and they became a very powerful team.

i left the store
saw the enthusiasm
on his face
gathered up the carts
as many as he could push
he was clearly strong
on the outside
just as he was hitting his stride
about to cross
the last fifty feet
into the store
decided to back up
took a few tries to do so
to cross in front of him
a young couple
ran in his path
four more cars
drove in front of him
just kept coming
still he stood
when the path
walked the carts
back into their place
in the store
in a show of
having no idea
patience, persistence and perspiration
make an unbeatable combination for success.
