Survive or Thrive

Is life busy but still a breeze

or just surviving with ill ease

Addicted to devices

Chasing desires and vices

Keeping up with trends

Catching up with friends

Botox to lips or face

World flying by at a rapid pace

Duties, commitments galore

Never satisfied, looking for that flaw

Fear and insecurities abound

Need constant entertainment around

Pause and reflect

to see what it is that you neglect

Living is much more than survival

Breath out, give calm a revival

Daily Prompt:  Survive



  1. You’ve captured, so well, the struggle of people today!
    I would always choose thriving over just surviving.
    Your poem reminds me of a favorite quote: “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” Oscar Wilde
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  2. It’s hard to remember that we’re supposed to thrive, not mere survive. And sometimes survival is as much as we can manage, but we certainly don’t have to live that way every day. Thanks for the reminder!
