Resilience

Staring out into the blue sea.

There, it is
there that space
in which she finds herself:
finds herself stuck between
rocks and hard places,
herself pacing back and forth
strength and weakness,
swaying to the rhythm of her
indecision, marching to her
heartbeat drum.

There, it is
there that space
in which her life unfolds
a dozen, hundred, thousand,
million ways, to answer:
What must I do?
Where must I go?
Whom do I trust?
Caught between the human nature
and that nature of life
that betrays or rises above.

There, it is
there that space
in which she discovers
there would be no wrong,
no error, no Great Fall:
perhaps pain, sometimes sadness,
lack of laughter, but
all choices, all lessons,
wisdom yet to be had.

There, it is
there that space
in which she finds herself.
