Photo Challenge #106 – We Are Worth It!


Image: Kavan Cardoza

We don’t know what tomorrow will bring

But we plan to do our best.

That’s what you do with

One day at a time.

Always we are reaching out

Knowing we are there

Knowing you are there.

So much of life is attempted

With life’s blind fold in place

Hoping we get it right,

Allowing patience to guide us

Placing one foot before the other

Believing we will find a sure place to step.

Every so often we lose our footing

We stumble and fall

The world we know vanishes

But only temporarily.

We are resilient folk

We find ways to return

Resurrect and replenish ourselves.

Despite the initial thought of a needing space

For no matter the fear we feel in losing what we treasure

The treasure itself is what nurtures us.

So we pick ourselves up

Dust off the hurt, push aside the obstacle

Watch the dawn arrive

Resolve to try again

Because we are worth it!
