Brave

Be brave today.
You’re stronger than you think.
How many times has the brink
of your will be tested?
Yet here you are, alive and well.
The tree that never fell
no matter how the wind howled,
you faced the storm and toweled
off. What’s a little water to your
ocean of magnificence?
Rainstorms and rain showers
give life. Not all seeds
grow into flowers.
The heavens blessed
you with birth,
to question your worth
is to ask why the sky is,
Or why the sun sets and rises—
you just are. You belong.
You are fierce. Be strong.
Be brave.
