X marks 'you are here'

Confidence is not courage.

Courage assumes the worst
When confidence assumes the best;
One functions through strength
The other through pride;
One is stiff
The other adaptive

I've lived in courage.

It is accepting the situation
When unsure of the self;
... How wrong I've been!
... Because all this time
I thought facing the world
Was more important than facing me

Courage has taught me to be numb.

Real power rests in accepting the self
When unsure of the situation;
Only then can one navigate with certainty
Regardless of terrain;
It is knowing who you are
Undefined by where or what

And this we call confidence.
