Resiliency

To hope against hope

To remain calm

To embrace change

It staggers the imagination

What we are faced with:

            Global destruction

            Political dissention

            Social declination

            Religious diminution

            Physical deterioration

Irreparable damage has been done

Can we make a difference?

            Global restoration

            Political renovation

            Social reformation

            Religious reparation

            Physical recuperation

To hope against hope

To remain calm

To embrace change

Resilience helps us resist

We are

abandoned but we can share

broken but we can mend

marginalized but we can recover

hurt but we can heal

fallen but we can get up

Resilience makes us supple

We are

neglected but we can care

wrecked but we can rebuild

dismissed but we can endorse

damaged but we can succeed

forgotten but we can commit

To hope against hope

To remain calm

To embrace change

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
