I WILL SURVIVE

 

 

Water surrounds me.

On all sides.

Ice cold water.

Like a hand from below.

Pulling me deeper.

Deeper into the unknown.

I must hold on.

Hold onto life.

Waves pushing me.

Farther from the shore.

I will swim.

I will tread water.

I will keep my head high.

Above the water.

I will survive.

A LONG HARD ROAD

If I had known it was going to be so hard,
 Involving computer skills to the extreme,
 I might have thought twice about it,
 Thought twice about writing my book.
 Writers must write each and every day.
 We must promote our books daily.
 We must post on our blogs each day.
 But there’s not enough hours in a day.
 How do other writers accomplish all this?
 How do they leave free time for their families?
 They must be expert jugglers.
 Experts at writing, blogging, and juggling.
 I must learn this dance.
 This high-wire walk.
 This never-ending battle.
 I must learn to juggle.
 I will do it.
 I will do it all.
 Just give me the chance.
 Book two is waiting to be written.
 I feel free.
 I feel empowered.
 I will survive.
 James Patterson, eat my dust.

THEN COMES THE CRACK

Source:

 

We can hold ourselves firm.

Strong against all obstacles.

Ready to tackle all problems.

And then comes the crack.

The one obstacle we can’t stop.

The one thing we have no control over.

It can break us apart into pieces.

It can weaken our hold onto life.

Or it can make us stronger still.

We all hit that obstacle at one point in our lives.

What will you do?

WHAT DO WE NEED?

mountaineous: Punch-Drunk Reverie | Tula Top

What does a person need?

To make him feel safe.

To feel secure.

To feel at peace

with the world.

A stream of water.

A few mountains.

Some sunshine.

Birds chirping.

Blue sky peeking

through the entrance

to your own cave.

It can be as simple

as a floating leaf.

We need so little.

We require so little

to survive.

Yet the world provides us

with so much more.

I WILL

I will grow.

I will reach the stars.

I don’t care about the graves

or the mausoleums.

I don’t care that

The Dead

walk the night.

I will grow leaves.

I will stay here.

I will stay alive.

I WILL SURVIVE

Water all around me.

On all sides.

Ice cold water.

Like a hand from below,

pulling me deeper.

Deep into the unknown.

Must hold on.

Hold on to life.

Waves pushing me away.

Away from the shore.

Away from life.

I will swim.

I will tread water.

I will keep my head

above the water.

I will survive.
