The poetry of Resilience

Because poetry carries intent, especially when gifted from person to person, the power of a poem can be surprising indeed. While it may provoke diverse interpretations, its effect on the individual can change the course of a relationship, even the trajectory of a life, and can encapsulate a feeling and change a mood in a potent way.
