Every time you find yourself
In a bit of a tussle
You need to adapt to the situation
A little bit of flexibility
Goes a long way
Where you bend but do not break.
Like the reed of grass
That bows down with grace
In the wind of changes.
Like water that flows to fit in
Until it shapes unto & settles itself
Like a lithe cat that braces itself
This ability to turn adversity
On its toes and dance with it
Is a valuable lifeskill.
This quality of adaptability
The way you adapt, adjust or modify
Says much about you as a person.
It speaks of your capacity
To be receptive to new ideas
And new ways of thinking
To step out of the box.
And perceive with fresh eyes.
To understand what is feasible
To be willing to respond than react
To the changes, in flexibility.
And the ability to be non judgmental
Speaks of your unflappable nature.
In responding with composure.
Adaptability is a necessary skill
To overcome any situation in life
To adapt is to survive.
