SURVIVAL by Amanda

Survival

Survival? Such a plain word.

But what does it mean? 

Living. Existing. Is it both?

Puzzled by this word,

I think of one.

A loved one.

Is it possible to survive without one?

Survival? I ponder again.

What does it mean?

Then I understand.

It means living through loss, pain, life 

It means living for something – someone 

It means living with significance 

Survival? So easy to speak.

It means hope.

It means endurance. 

It is but a choice

Yet it is what I do. It’s what we all do.

For one to be able to survive, one must live.
