Somedays

Somedays you swallow a crocodile
Other days a crocodile swallows you

Each day nestles delight and pain
Eternal is not promisedโ€”

But profound strength of human spirit
Reflects truth. Never give up!

Fighting for own can be ferocious
But I dare face the crocodile head on.

note: The poem was inspired by Midweek Motif ‘Rising Above’ at Poets United.
