the bravest deed …

… of the most courageous man


he knows he has woken
before he opens his eyes

thus
the task is defined
a first step upon the way

rubs his face
to be sure he feels right
then moves to the side
levers himself out of bed

small things
tiny steps
nothing too grand
to get the show underway

a cold water dousing
a shake to clear the head
make sure the mind is engaged
and ready

for whatever will come
next
