One never knows the instant or instance,
It arrives in this suddenness which impacts.
A shudder to the heart of such awareness,
A weakness finds its own strength to move.
Silent and fearsome tongues speak aloud,
Whispers slowly raise internal confidences.
A clarity and understanding evolve in time,
Depleted spirits gain nourishment and energy.
Fervour replaces weak and dampened modes,
Encouragement reconnects one’s belief in faith.
Isolation conserves a gradual loneliness in oneself,
Courage requires openness to entertain invitations.
Motivation rewards contentment and positivity,
A philosophical attitude defines many possibilities.
