Let the tears flow, darling
There is no weakness in emotions.
If the world weighs you down
If the oceans sink you deep
If the universe swallows you whole?
You are still here
Breathing, fighting, surviving;
One day at a time,
An hour a minute,
A second a breath,
Pulsing around you, within you.
The fight isn't over yet;
You haven't given up, honey.
There it is-
The world to conquer,
The oceans to swim
The space to float high
The words to say, to repeat, to establish
That you wouldn't walk away defeated.
Not now, not ever
Not until you win, you stand tall
Not until the tears turn to smiles
Not until the thorns are flowers
For, you are Aparajita, the undefeatable.
