To Rise & Cope

To Rise & Cope

Today I start with or without

I attempt to begin, my strive

Tomorrow I start where I left off

In a moment I convince the mind

To put aside all losses and despair

Alas, battle between armed forces

Reminded that, as I weep my pain

I thrive in my discovery

I am resilient.

I keep my shape.

I overcome.

I survive.
