The strength of human will
Is stronger than anything
That can happen to it.
This phenomenon of nature holds true.
As the strongest winds blow
So the seedling is strengthened.
When I think of the wisdom and the resiliency
Of Victor Frankl at Auschwitz,
I am much better able to tolerate
The foul smelling woman
Who sits beside me
On the way to Penn Station.
