Enduring the Swarm

 

70449-A-Light-In-The-Darkness

“At the end of the day, we can endure
much more than we think we can.”-Frida Kahlo

The calm before the storm

Swelling burdens begin to swarm

Life’s lease preparing to expire?

Thrusting moments forward to retire?

The end is just around the bend

Only shards of time left to spend

There’s one thing I know for sure

We rejoice our efforts if we can endure

    Sometimes it takes endurance, sometimes it takes humor, and then sometimes we are lucky and it just takes ignorance! Great poetry.
