Don't give in
when the world crashes
underneath your feet.
stand your ground
and don't let the foolishmess
of others
overwhelm the intelligence
within you.
keep your decks of cards
on the line
so that if a queen may be played,
your kings of hearts
will rise to its power
Learn to be vulnerable
to the pain inflicted upon you
by rocks aimed at your shins
instead of
whispered words
spoken by the hollow-hearted.
Swing open your window
and invite in the cool breeze.
Let your hair
lift from your shoulders
as nature guides your path
along a twisted road
of bravery.
And when the Earth decides to crash
underneath your worn feet
be the one
who doesn't give in.
