R is for Resilience


Life is a tough journey that is never the same
Constantly changing like some kind of game,
We are not perfect and we make mistakes
We hurt so deeply that our heart breaks,
We try new things and fall flat on our face
Resilience helps us forget our disgrace,
Growing and learning, we persevere
Resilience guides us through the fear,
Wiser and stronger, we start anew
Resilience helps us see it through.

  3. Agreed. Resilience is something that, if in place, can help people through really rough times. If not, even the smallest bumps in circumstances can rock a world... Good things to be reminded of, thanks.

    1. Yes, so true, Talya. The people of Boston are very resilient, I would say.

  5. Isn't that ever so true. I think it's the survival instinct in us that makes us bounce right back. Nice one.
