    Here is the poem for # 2:


    Another Mountain

    Sometimes there’s a mountain
    that I must climb
    even after I’ve climbed one already
    But my legs are tired now
    and my arms need a rest
    my mind is too wary right now
    But I must climb before the storm comes
    before the earth rocks
    and an avalanche of clouds buries me
    and smothers my soul
    And so I prepare myself for another climb
    Another Mountain
    and I tell myself it is nothing
    it is just some more dirt and stone
    and every now and then I should reach
    another plateau and enjoy the view
    of the trees and the flowers below
    And I am young enough to climb
    and strong enough to make it to any top
    You see the wind has warned me
    about settling too long
    about peace without struggle
    The wind has warned me
    and taught me how to fly
    But my wings only work
    After I’ve climbed a mountain

    Thanks for that poem, but I read it a few days ago.

    I'm sorry you didn't look up the meaning of resilient.
