The mountain is an example of solidity
The banyan tree is an example of tenacity
They aren’t affected by hurricane and rain.
The moving sand is an example of friability
The bending climber is an example of fragility
They are affected by storm and rain.
The person with persistent determination
As a mountain and banyan
Stay unaffected with resolution
Even in the wake of mammoth disturbances.
The person with emotions meek
As the moving sand and climber
Are affected and weak
Even in the wake of small disturbances.
Only the person who is tenacious
Stands tall as a banyan
And is as a solid mountain!
