Somebody said she showed courage

because she wasn’t afraid to go anywhere

or do anything

or ask anybody any question at all

and she did plenty of that

Now, that might be admirable and noteworthy

But I’m not so sure it’s courage

if you’re not afraid in the first place

Some of us are afraid to go plenty of places

and afraid to do many different things

and afraid to ask certain questions

But most of the time

we do those scary things anyway

Now that kind of seems more like courage

to me
