Our Power

With enough time

we can get adapted to any situation we are in,

no matter how horrible that situation might be.


This is our power to endure.


The power to suffer until suffering becomes tolerable.


It might seem like a terrible power for us to have,

and it will leave scars,

but some would say that we not only have the power to tolerate it,

but that it is our responsibility to find the meaning in it.


Flying through the sky,

or super speed,

would be a pretty neat power to have,

but we got dealt the power to adapt and overcome,

and there’s something pretty neat about that too.
