Holding on

A wild flower doesn’t waver

faced with the oncoming weather


A stout tree doesn’t falter

when the hurricane gathers


A passive creature doesn’t move

it has the strength to stand firm


A crying man doesn’t shy

from his emotional outburst


A breastfeeding mother doesn’t heed

the talk of closed minds in public


A questioning child doesn’t listen

to the robotic answers of the teacher
