The Invisible Support

What is the invisible support propping up your feet,

When days grow long and bitter,

In a series of defeats?

What shields you through the fire and the rain,

Mitigating inner turmoil

Softening the sharpest pain?

Is it the voice of someone benevolent and dear

Placing arms around shoulders

Calming down your rising fears?

Is it the motivating gift of life pursuit,

Engaged in what matters most

All self-doubt to refute?

Cling tightly to those strong, reinforcing stays

Hold them in your best esteem

As they uphold you on your way.
