Be Brave: Spoken Poetry on Anger

Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 2 seconds

The video recorded below came about when Roz saw one of my poems and reached out and asked me if I’d ever spoken my poetry aloud… and she invited me that we record it together, with emotion. So I chose “I’m Not Angry at You”, originally published in 2016. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this – and if you’ve got poetry you’d like to record and share, let us know!

I apologize in advance that I have not had time to review the captions, but the actual poem is linked up there, if you wanted to follow along there.

Being brave helps me face VUCA.

When I’m brave I dare to be accountable.

I am human and sometimes fail to be brave.

But I become brave in my role – as mother, daughter, leader, teacher, trusted friend.

Becoming brave was an accidental yet conscious, arduous yet beautiful, journey over my lifetime.

Now that I know how to be brave for myself, I must help others find their own path to being brave too. Here is the image again below:
