Resilient


Written Febuary 29, 2012 (Leap Year)

Resilient.

They say I am,

But who can tell

Not just them.

 

A rubber band

A bounce back pro,

I fall on my face

Then get up and go.

 

I can’t sit back

And claim this defeat,

I keep climbing

on my own two feet.

 

I claw and I punch

The walls that block my path,

Somehow return home

To reflect on my past.

 

So a rubber band

A bounce back pro,

I’m stronger now

Than you’ll ever know.

 

Note for the Author:

I wrote this poem after I hit rock bottom in Texas.  I was unhappy with my life, my decisions and the jerk I was with, but I kept talking myself into dealing with it.  Then he left, went home to Alabama, and I was able to get a break from his bullshit, and I found resilience.  The poem was how I felt about my ability to move forward from the wreckage.  I may have allowed him to come back into my life, but it was never real.  I hope you enjoy.
