On this the Feast of the Sacred Heart

It is hard to be brave
Dying of cancer
In a busy ward
Full of noise and
Strange lights.

It is hard to be brave
when deserted by friends
left
on pathways hidden.
Or scorned by the young
whose vanity tells them
they can change reality
with any whim, just use
words
and persecute those
who object to
illusions.

It is hard to be brave
when those beloved
have left this life
and words can only
be silent
for us left behind
to be brave.
