“The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasums, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“She was resilient

A brave soldier when life tested her

It didn’t matter that she did strange things
like stand tall under the rain
letting the drops kiss her skin
thinking the storm was romantic

It was hard to quiet her
not that you would want to
when she spoke, it was captivating

Her heart was like a candle
warm and delicate
just what you needed during darkness

Sometimes, she’d go off and explore the world
test her limits
laugh too much
cry when humans were cruel

It wasn’t hard to see why people envied her

You’d come to realize she was a lion
and she could not be tamed.” – M.J. Abraham
