Resilience

Resilience pounds resistance into the ground.
Courage shows up disguised as vulnerability
For when you
see into me,
my vulnerabilities
my insecurities & pain,
see my resilience
my determination
my fire
you see courage

For Courage is forged through vulnerability
persistence coupled with bravery
moxie and chutzpah
blows through fears
misty fog

What is resisted persists
so persisting
resilience
alleviates fear
this is the magic alchemy
of super powers.
