In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Under the Snow.”
You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?
As on my cold and freezing bed I lie
My life flashes before my inward eye
I see me in a cozy house waving bye
To my mom as off to my school I fly
My sisters, my first best friends, and I
Weaving together, a colored tapestry.
I grow up – meet my dear soul-mate
We in each other, find our happy fate
Hand in hand we create a little nest
A lil place to laugh, cry and rest.
A little wait and a little surprise
And our happiness is on the rise.
A few dark clouds darken the horizon
And I realise life is not just plain fun.
I have made my mistakes and my eyes do blur
Some I have paid for, some I am yet to conquer.
If tomorrow comes, I hope to find an anchor
In some little ways to give me a succor
In overcoming my blind spots
In finding all the bright spots.
If tomorrow comes, may I be a better human a better me
A purer heart, a stronger mind, a greater will to “be”
If tomorrow comes, may it never ever find
My wonderful family in a bind of any kind.
If tomorrow comes, All I want, all I ever want to see,
Those dear, dear faces laughing in unrestrained glee!
If tomorrow comes, may I enjoy the warmth and joy of being alive
The worth of a smile, a tear, a wish, a fear -all saying- “I’m Alive”!
