What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,
a little tougher.
The wait lasts a little longer-
the burn remains,
the ache sustains-
but you learn to refrain
from acknowledging the pain.
From here on out,
there’s only gain.
What doesn’t kill you
makes you more alive.
You learn exactly what it takes to thrive,
how much effort second chances take,
and how, no matter what, you have to try
There are no limits.
The wings you’ve grown don’t recognize
where the stars begin or the end of the sky.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Now it’s time to fly.
