Proof of Endurance

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #242, Motivation:  Endurance

“Overcome adversity to win against all odds”

Possessing endurance
always comes as a
surprise to me. You see,
I never thought
I would need it.

Tests of endurance
include: living a life
after the ones you loved
are not; staunchly sitting
still through great pain
that you never thought
you could bear; continuing
to live day by day instead
of opting out.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    To read the poem again, you will find another reason to interpret it. There is no need to hide from life. The best thing is to enjoy all the time. Tomorrow, it’s already late. It is too short. Enjoy your blog all the time I read it.
