I could have panicked,
just given up,
or put my head in the sand.
But that wouldn’t have helped me much,
so I gave myself a hand.
I collected buckets of determination,
kicked away my fears.
I stood up for what I believed in,
in the most horrible of years.
I called my best friends around me,
and they turned up in droves.
I might have panicked for a moment,
but I didn’t and it shows.
