Daily Prompt: Vigor

Misinterpreted, misused

true vigor, not so easy to find.


Vigor isn’t the absence of tears

or absence of fear

it’s not burying one’s emotions

and certainly not holding back words

or hiding perspectives.


It’s having confidence, courage

not letting fear consume the mind,

it’s showing emotion and being brave

enough to speak up when changes

need to take place.


It’s swallowing pride and refusing to be petty.

Vigor is helping others even in inconvenient times

and showing love to others even when there’s a good

chance they won’t show love in return.


Vigor is knowing that pain is inevitable but excited to live anyway

it is a having the mindset to enjoy life no matter what

it refuses to be complacent; always wants to improve

and always finds an opportunity to show itself.


Facebook Page for Poets!

Hi everybody!

It’s been a long while since I posted and I apologize if I disappointed any of you because of my lack of posts. I’m going through a huge career change (or career gain haha) so my focus has been far away from poetry for the past couple of months.

I just wanted to thank all the 69 people who are following this blog. Thank you for your support. I can’t tell you how much your support has helped me!

I would like to say that my Facebook page, “Nothing But Poetry” is open to the public. If you have poems you would like to share, you are welcome to post on this page. Although I’d prefer no obscene language or mature content on the page, there won’t be any consequences if you do post poems that contain these components. I will point out, however, that if anything rude, offensive, or not relating to poetry at all will be deleted.

Thank you all so much again. Have fun and good luck with all your blogs. I hope they grow, reach and inspire more and more people each day!
