During times of comfort,

No threshold to bear a slight discomfort,

Sight of a tiny roach,

Mighty strategy to destroy, would be the approach,

Times change,

Priorities arrange,

Strategies rearrange,

Never known inner strength surfaces,

Tenacity resurfaces,

Complacency goes for a toss,

Change, an order resolves,

A battered, nevertheless, better person evolves.
