Resilience is not just a word but magic that we all possess..
I slept and wept then cried and tried
But all in vain and got a strain
Journey was long with a thunderstorm
Signals and alarms ahead all blurred
I stepped forward barefoot
Pebbles pricking hard on me...
With gloomy heart and eyes all wet
I almost drowned in swampy lands
Shouting out loud for help I gave up, but then..
Resilience whispered softly .....
Dance now on your heels
Throw away the mud that seal
The strength you have deep beneath
Come out of it and empty your sheath
Then I slept and kept it high and never cried and tried and tried..
