Resilience

She fell many times
Battled through rain,
thunder and dark nights
She struggled through mud
She faced the demons
without and within
Often she drowns
in rivers of tears

The rose lost many petals
Storms could hit her
And heavy weather
could bring her down
But always she bounced
back to the sun
As her greatest strength
lies in her heart
Her greatest strength
is love
