the will to survive and the pursuit of happiness

the 14 given words:
pursuit always welcome eases other gathers seizes 
current mirrors smoke water fate face arrival 

the will to survive and the pursuit
of happiness are the basic rights
of a living creature

one will always welcome them
if they ease off other difficulties
that may come close

one gathers the strength to overcome
and seizes selfishly the opportunity
it is resolving current inconveniences
to help get over future obstacles

it mirrors good strategies and intentions
to clear the smoke when small
before it builds up
thus avoiding them from transforming
into something big which later can develop
into something insurmountable

much water can go under the bridge
when panic stations are unwittingly let loose 
but fate will play a hand in the face of
offending pleasures and enjoyment

the arrival of contending sanity can help
create a sense of purpose to make it
worthwhile to go on living the good life

  1. Great verse Hank, without "The Will" one hasn't got "Hope".
    Have a great day.


  2. Can't let things build up indeed, or they'll end up much worse. Have to push on.

  3. Fix those problems when they're small or they will overwhelm you later.
