Fear is a blank page.
Fear is the impending crash of a wave.
Fear is five miles — then fifty.
Fear is a broken heart.
Fear is death.

Hope is the words will flow.
Hope is position and timing.
Hope is the body will endure.
Hope is the heart will flourish.
Hope is life.

Resilience picks up the pen.
Resilience paddles out again.
Resilience laces up the shoes.
Resilience is tries one more time.
Resilience is living.

Hope lies in resilience,
fear is required by hope.
