To Rise Above

As a stone tumbled in coarse reality,
constantly worn as it is refined,
adversity, it’s true beauty shows.

So it is by trial we find,
all that we are capable of,
the strength which lies beneath.


We are not defined by our trials,
but by how we face them.

We are all afraid; bravery is a choice,
that though you may lose,
you shall never be defeated.

Who among us does not have flaws?
Who does not bear scars?
Each of our journeys unique.
Our adversities leave upon us lasting marks.
They show us all that we have overcome.

Life; a constant struggle,
and by choosing not to give in,
we rise above.
