On Staying Strong

Staying strong is not
like being a tough rock
or an armoured knight

But it’s like a tree
that bends with its branches
in the wind
A ship that moves
with the tides

It’s being in the midst of a storm
But having your eyes focused
on the bright horizon
in the distance

It’s feeling all the emotions
with a soft and open heart
Being the space for the waves
to rise and fall
And yet keeping both feet firmly
on the ground
