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.
