Enduring With Sanity

being alive
forces us to survive
but surviving isn’t living

our days on this earth
will be filled with some shit
but we must rise above

acceptance of our reality
lessens the blows
cools the struggles

joy and comfort
are still to be found
in heaps all around

one foot in front of the other
maintaining balance
homeostasis can be achieved

I wish I could recall what post inspired these thoughts, but I can’t! I do know that it was in response to something Eugenia said. Maybe she remembers? 🙂

  1. Hmm, I can’t pinpoint what post may have inspired your poem. What comes to mind is I often refer to my mom’s favorite saying “rise up above it” and some of my poems suggest taking life one step at a time to achieve balance. Thank you for the mention, Susi. 💖
