Resilience

The unthinkable happened
  and yet you survived
you rose like cream.

  Enriched not diminished
able to let go
  you moved on and through
  Not forgiveness
  but acceptance
somehow, you just got over it.
Whatever happened, happened.

You did it, and your past became
  your future resilience.


You helped me appreciate
  continuity
from the present to the past.
  Experience, good and bad,
brought me to here
  I can feel that now.
  Understanding
  and acceptance
somehow Iíll just get over it.
Whatever happened, happened.

I can get there, my past will become
  my future resilience.
