Last night,
My walls crumbled down;
The roof above me,
caved in;
My skin tightened,
Flesh upon flesh
With blood rapidly pulsating.
This must be it,
I thought to myself;
This can’t be it,
I declared;
A brewing storm,
On my insides-
My throat, my eyes-

It all seems distant past;
There’s something
To be said about-
Last night I said-
This can’t be it;
And my Lord,
He got me through it.

  1. I actually have the word resilience tattooed on my shoulder. I love how this poem depicts the meaning so well!
