A free verse of trying.


When Everything Else Has Failed

When everything else has failed,

Hope goes completely down the drain.



You drown in own misery—

Letting the currents pull your body further into the ocean.



Right before you drown to death,

You realize the value of a precious life,

So you swim back to the beach,

And keep living another day—fighting for a solution.

The "ing" of life is action. As long as there is action there is life. As Dory from the movie, FINDING NEMO, says, "just keep swimming, swimming, swimming." It may sound silly but really it is truth and truth is never silly. Thanks for reminding us of the importance of life and trying. :) kathy

Taken it one day at a time! To survive that one day - a result!
