Hero’s Heart

“Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.”
― Rabindranath Tagore

Ease not my burdens but give me a stronger back to bear the weight of my responsibilities.

Smooth not the path before me but make me resilient so that I may overcome the inevitable obstacles.

Do not dull my senses but sharpen my intellect and strengthen my will so that I may see and persevere even when it breaks my heart.

Do not change the world for me but help me change myself so that the world cannot break me.

If it be your will, grant me the will to bear what I must as others shall not accept the fate we all must face.

Thus I may survive and inspire those to come after me.
