Surviving to Thriving, Creative Writing

Surviving to Thriving!

Let us not

go about


as if only

a passing


but let us



by raising up

our ever,

lowered chin!

One favored


for my joy,


from that place

so deep within,

is my all-time

favorite hobby:

the taking

of a refreshing


~ (Poem Below) ~

Surviving to Thriving

Immersed in this cocoon

of silky warmth,

I glide weightlessly,

among sun-lit crystals;

mesmerized by lush

forest greens,

inhabited by dark blue,

fluttering wings

with voices rising up

in deliciously,

sweet melodies,

I am consumed

by God’s Gifts!

Though fully enveloped

beneath smooth,

liquid velvet,

I drift, effortlessly, 

thriving in this ecstasy

of unhindered


From the womb

of merely surviving,

I have been reborn

into the God-Given

realm of glorious


P.S. – Dear Friends, I wrote the above post with my waterproof ink pen while I was under six feet of water.


Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
