NaPoWriMo #17: survivor

Writers Island's two prompts this week are "survivor" and "triumph". This is short and sweet but it combines both prompts without too much of a stretch.


Joy in the Journey

Just getting by is a triumph some days
but I want more than to merely survive
coping crisis to crisis; my soul says
find joy in love, life, creation and thrive.

It may be short ..but is really very sweet :)

So true that some days truly are difficult to get through but if you look for the positive ..surprisingly you WILL find it !

i only know that a soul is never truly content,, were everything running smoothly,, you would be bored and seek excitement... we are never happy are we????
