  • Resilience

    Did you ever notice.
    when you want to quit.
    there's an urge to continue?
    you seem to find that little one within you,
    that believes you can do it.

    little dude, resilience,
    such brilliance,
    contained by a single word, a term.
    power, to make your body rejuvenate,
    energy to recreate.

    something inside,
    saying don't give it up,
    keep on for the ride,
    you're only beginning,
    if you cant take a slap,
    how do you take a stinging?

    worth it through the tough,
    sometimes its rough,
    believe in your stuff,
    throw forth that last inch,
    make it a cinch.

    you know its there,
    believe it for once.
    just cause there was a few bad months,
    maybe it was years, dry your tears.
    it doesn't mean, you're unaware.

    beware, the demon of quit.
    the mad hatter,
    he will gather your soul on a platter,
    and devour your heart until your spirit is shattered.

    I'll take the route of the little engine..."I think I can, I think I can..." and keep on chugging.

    Enjoyed this more mature version of that classic! Thanks!

    This is inspirational and would be so effective if it was put in books for adolescents.

          FixXxer - Sometimes the only difference between people is the presence of a dream in one person, the absence of a dream in another person and the behavior each exhibits as a result. Any man or woman 'driven by a dream' is a force to reckon with. They don't quit. They build empires! Thanks for sharing FixXxer. Namyh
