Struggle – The Daily Prompt!

To live in this world is to be brave

Life is punctuated with degrees of challenges

I live with its bitter-sweet taste

Aware of its stings and the poison it emits

Life is a roller coaster ride

My struggles are my cross

I carry them with dignity

And with a fervent hope

I must persevere

As I swim through this turbulent ocean

For I know that I will sail through it unscathed

And leave a legacy that will make a mockery

Of the vicissitudes of life

That I have stumbled upon

Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Struggle.

Peace and Love!

  1. Yes, may your struggles end with glorious testimony of the victories you have won. Hope my family some day will say, “I know we can do this, Grandma did.” And that they will know Grandma did it through the grace of Jesus Christ. Love the poem. Terrific vocabulary expressing worthy content.

    • Amen and Amen. I am a survivor and an overcomer through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you Ma’am. Victory is our new song in life before God is our Father. Your family will testify, indeed, you have set a good standard worthy to emulate. 🙂
