The Brilliance of Resilience

Peacock Poetry

Today we are challenged to produce a poem that meditates, from a position of tranquility, on an emotion that we have felt powerfully and I have selected to focus on resilience. There will always be situations that bring us down for a while but it’s how we bob back up that is, in my book, way more interesting. How we stay afloat and buoyant is a mark of our mindset and character and although this can be highly challenging at times, the bounce back factor is key.


Buoyancy sets us apart

We rise again, determined

We don’t lose faith, we don’t lose heart

just float anon, unburdened

There is an art, it’s not just luck

To bouncing back from problems

When we’re pushed down, we bob back up

And swim on gladly from them

Remaining cheerful as we start

again, primed with new learning

Buoyancy sets us apart
