Resilience

by Michael Seibold

 

Each day, arising to the possibilities jumbled before me, flying by, fast and noisy,

I wish I could, I wish I could, be bold.

Step out of my fear, step away from all the “negatives,”

and walk into a better place, a civil place with accepting space and feel to it; where I could find some peace, and maybe something I’d like to do,

like helping others, or just conversation . ..

 

It’s hard to find all that and keep it.

I’ve been down that road before and lost it; But if invited and gently guided I might try with you

I guess I can, I guess I can, be brave.

Step out of my fear, step away from all the “negatives,” and walk into that better place,

Yes, with you today, I can.
