3 Elephants

strength abound sat deep inside

she carried a fragile soul 

despite the scars worn by all who held her close

a united strength held her high 

readying her mettle 

a test hovered 

outside the door 

perhaps before it’s time

at an unimaginable pace

the flood arrived

forcing steps back 

to absorb the rising waters

the elephants appeared

loyal beyond all boundaries 

unwavering companions to fight loneliness

unity buoyed the strength deep inside

a weighty burden

can be shared

you are not alone

breathe deep and look for the elephants
