Strength Stands Alone

whether out of beauty or pain
a soulful release emanates
at the precise time
its necessary

a body’s need of expression
earns it a required stability
these intermittent flashes of emotion
sparking the next step into a newfound reality

each successful misery
ensures durability, strength and endurance
every joy experienced
gains a person hope, satisfaction and strength

we have to trust in ourselves
for life is given to us
but our nature leads us
let it not go astray
