Resilience 

Listen to your heart, as it awakens in your soul
feel the blood that travels, that almost lost control
touch the sound that holds you close, and never lets you
go
always there to open up, what you’re afraid to show
feel the shiver run through your spine, moving up and
down
taking a piece or part of you, a little every time
taste the fear your hands will hold, until I see your eyes
never run, never hide, always in disguise.
