Resilience is delicate in the strong, for the strong can respond to the world.
Anger at injustice,
guilt in surviving,
frustration at weakness,
sadness from loss,
hopelessness in despair.
The capacity to respond incapacitates.
The capacity to respond distorts.
Resilience is strong in the delicate, for the delicate cannot respond.
Stand silent and stoic,
withstand the weight,
push up and through,
maintain your form,
live in the heat of life.
The inability to respond enables.
The inability to respond sustains.
