A crystal carriage

was
the life I used to live
protected by

 

Preconceived images and
fears I learned
from experiences

 

Life offers many magical turns

 

Strength is not inheritance
but acquired
through blood, tears and
many more wails

 

Resilience, tolerance,
tenacity, or perseverance
whatever you name it

 

It comes from
the Realization
Light is in me

 

The warmth of the sun
the kindness of the moon
I share with you
