Courage

What is the true source of
courage?
Aspirations of non-harming
can only create
compassion
for as far as the eye
can see.
Looking deeply
I see
There is no other
way through
this field
of land mines.
Each careful step
touches the ground
and tests it out
before applying any pressure
whatsoever.
What is the true source of
courage?
Understanding?
