The root of courage

The root of courage                                                                                

Cor is the root of courage,
Latin for heart

from which it springs.
Yes, a heart and courage grown faint

but only when we coronate
its pretender, its appropriator,

the Vizier we employ
in heartbreaking irony to meet life’s threats,

real and imagined; the very maker
of fear, the saboteur of love,

ever in opposition by dominance,
usurpation of the heart,

the cor, the coeur, the core
from which all courage springs.

O child of God, yield your head
to the heart’s dominion.
