Heartbeat



One step sideways
All it takes
Difference between
A Hero and a Coward

Time of Action
Act together
Unmindful of Outcome
Reticence Overcome

Proxy represent
Windy about Presence
Besides oneself
Defenition of Cowardice

Now and then
Prediction futile
Awareness fictional
Results Notional

Ready for the Unknown
Till it becomes the known
Strength Within
Decides hearts Rhythm

Unknown remaining that
Runaway at the premise
Pinnacle of Cowardice
Throw the dice

Prediction brings confusion
Permutations and Combinations
Statistical formula
Yet to be invented
Numbers for letters
Shooting blanks for Answers

Inside or Outside
Acquired or Inborn
Physical or Mental
Not Mutually exclusive
Random to fathom
Every kind
Universe can find

From the heart
Not restricted to the tongue
All chips dow
Out of Comfort Zone

Courage not lack of fear
With Fear Full Throttle on top gear
Owning the act
Impact intact
Facing the heat
Collar tight
Might to fright
Takes flight

Emotion without an Address
Rendered Rudderless
Orphanage refuses Refuge
A hat with a feather
Fear is for the Other

Jaundiced heart
Prejudiced mind
Subterfuge personality
No character
Life with Fear
