Finding my Courage

P!nk’s new song Courage has been running through my mind as of late, as I challenge myself in ways I wasn’t anticipating. Many changes are occurring in this kinky little princess’s life, and some days I wonder if I have the courage, but I certainly hope for a bright future, I hope it works. And a damn good reminder that I don’t have to do everything perfectly! I love her music and somehow always find it inspiring.

Courage

I’m walking uphill both ways, it hurts
I bury my heart here in this dirt
I hope it’s a seed, I hope it works
I need to grow, here I could be
Closer to light, closer to me
I don’t have to do this perfectly, yeah
Rain, it pours, rain, it pours
It’s pouring on me
The rain, it falls, rain, it falls
Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope
We don’t have to stay, stuck in the way
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
I’m walking uphill both ways, it hurts
(Have I the courage to change?)
I bury my heart here in this dirt
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I hope it’s a seed, I hope it works
(Have I the courage to change?)
I need to grow, here I could be
(Have I the courage to change?)
Closer to light, closer to me
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I don’t have to do this perfectly
See, I let the light in the darkest places
Let the sun shine, pain goes away
Nothing is permanent for me, yeah
Flowers, they bloom and fade away
The beauty, it happened inside of me
Even if it’s a memory, yeah
Rain, it pours, rain, it pours
It’s pouring on me
The rain, it falls, rain, it falls
Sowing the seeds of love and hope, love and hope
We don’t have to stay, stuck in the way
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
I’m walking uphill both ways, it hurts
(Have I the courage to change?)
I bury my heart here in this dirt
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I hope it’s a seed, I hope it works
(Have I the courage to change?)
I need to grow, here I could be
(Have I the courage to change?)
Closer to light, closer to me
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I don’t have to do this perfectly
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change?
Have I the courage of change today? (Oh)
I’m walking uphill both ways, it hurts (oh)
(Have I the courage to change?)
I bury my heart here in this dirt (have I)
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I hope it’s a seed, I hope it works (have I, have I)
(Have I the courage to change?)
I need to grow, here I could be (ooh)
(Have I the courage to change?)
Closer to light, closer to me (ooh-ah)
(Have I the courage to change today? Oh)
I don’t have to do this perfectly (have I)
Today, today
