There are times when vulnerability becomes strength.
Times when one lays it bare for all to see, not fearful of any retaliation, or any form of ridicule, exclaiming:
here i stand, here i am;
whatever you give, i will take.
so attack me if you will,
chase me up the hills
or throw me into a lake.
but this is who i truly am,
and this is where i’ll plant my flag.
An unmistakable show of character; a demonstration of unshakable resolve.
A stubbornness that is, if for a wrong cause, an incorrigible fault, but for the right one, a thunderous rallying cry that punches through the clouds of doubt.
