Opportunities for victimhood

Abound.
A never-ending supply, it seems.
Even on your strongest day
Your heart can find reasons
To whine
To magnify unfairness
To abdicate responsibility.
Rising above victimhood
Is a continuous choice
A moment by moment
Posture of heart,
Reminding yourself
Again and again
Of the version of your story
Where you are whole
And wholesome,
Steady on your feet,
Buoyant in your heart
Determined in your spirit
That despite the famines you’ve faced
And the floods you have endured
You’re not going to show up
Empty handed.
