Acknowledge and be humbled
by the teachers, we encounter along the way.
They give us our strength to spread our wings
Notice the lessons of nature’s bounty.
The colors, the beauty, and secret determination
that at times may only be visible to you.
Display your strength.
Shout it from the highest mountain
or silently persevere and grow.
Reach towards the sun, while staying
firmly rooted to the ground.
Hold fast during storms and remember
that you will live the life you seek
proud, and fully in bloom.
Thank you for reading my books: If I Could Tell You How It Feels, and Untangled, A Story of Resilience, Courage, and Triumph
