Resilience,
with silent resistance.

Stumbling, struggling and surviving,
hanging on to every reason for living.
Acceptance,
with silent resistance.
Resilience,
with quiet defiance.

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
