Boot Camp Day 11: Random small musings

Shine like a diamond

The way the light is caught

So fleetingly

By the facets of the cut

Creating a rainbow in my imagination

Resilient and brilliant.


Seeing a light break over the horizon

Feeling a cool change on a hot day

Offering a helping hand

Doing a small gesture

It is by these means

That we change the world,

Of that you can be certain.

Survival advice

So much has already been written

about the cages with no bars.

And of the hardest of journeys

being the best by far.

I know that to win on the outside

is to have refused defeat on the inside.

But in that moment of shatter

none it matters,

as you’ll struggle to breathe,

to get up and leave.

It’s a hard road to navigate –

trying to reshape your fate.

But here I am, battle scarred;

ready for the fight; surviving and on guard.
