Inspired by “One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.” -Michael J Fox
A person’s dignity can only be rendered by them
Amidst adversity, it constantly gets tested
Sometimes with cruelty and other times with praise
No matter the situation, there is only one with control
Who knows where from judgements stem?
Too many reasons that could’ve manifested
Sometimes, the emotions place us in a confused daze
Only your decision has power to console
Don’t drown in anger or unstitch your hem
Only you decide if you’ve been bested
Perhaps patience will ease the haze
And this lesson is meant to make you whole
Keep moving forward when you feel tested
Don’t surrender when life is a mysterious maze
You have the power within; take control!
