How To Be Strong - Nikita Gill
There are no rules.
You are already strong.
Even when you are feeling yourself fall apart
in the most public place you know.
Even when your knees hit the floor
and your grief meets you in floods.
Even when your body wracks with sobs
crafter in the belly of a tsunami.
Even when sorrow feels like
an endless sea of drowning
Your fortitude is right there
Your strength is within you always
to call up when you want to.
And besides, didn’t anyone ever tell you
that survival, that resilience
that strength looks
so different on us all?
On some it looks like still waters and on others
it looks like a dam bursting as the water falls.
