Today the challenge at Real Toads is to write a verse that uplifts the soul. That can be quite the challenge with all the sad news lately, but luckily humans are resilient by nature. I’ve also accepted the challenge at the NaPoWriMo site today to write a poem that begins and ends with the same word. Finally, I’ve done this in exactly 55 words for G-Man’s Friday Flash 55.
within our deepest challenges,
darkest moments of fear,
pain and suffering galore,
we find little moments inspiring
gratitude for what remains.
We find reserves of strength
and inspiration to grow and change.
We find hope nestled among grief
and peace resides next to sorrow.
We find with surprise and delight
this resilience comes from within.
