I have heard it said
that you cannot be a coward
and be in love,
and that you must choose one.
I would agree.
Giving someone the very means to destroy you
is the definition of bravery,
the likes that cowards will never achieve.
You see, strength lies not
in detachment
or in solitude
or in pretending not to care.
Foolish child.
true strength,
lies in vulnerability.
In bringing your guard down.
In facing your emotions and fears.
That is the very essence of what it means
to be human.
And to embrace that
is strength.
