The mettle you

If you drown, 

swim to the sun. 

If you fear, 

pop your bubble. 

If you cry,

cry harder.

If they call you spineless,

grow above them report completo.

If they nudge past you, 

sweep them aside. 

If they break you apart,

become a puzzle. 

If the say you’re a chicken,

be a phoenix. 

If it’s going to be hard,

let it be. 

It is meant to be.

And you are meant to do it. – Jude Fallon
