Stoic Stance

Stoic stance,

stand me in good stead;

though the earth give way,

and the mountains rush into the sea,

I will not be moved.

Scales of Justice,

swing no more.


remove thyself from the mill.

Super-sized inner strength,

with a side of courage,

usher the bride to the altar

and marry heart to intent;

Spirit whose breath

holds me aloft,

make good your boast

and hold me fast

in this solo dance,

stoic stance.
