calling on a strength

calling on a strength
that lies in the bones
but is larger than oneself,
or any one of us.
breaking through the isolation
and the dark expanses…
a strength that goes beyond time and space.
It is a strength that has endured
through the ages,
grit.
a strength that allows you
to rise up from the depths
a strength that unites
in community,
but is born in individuality.
