Life reflections

The Daily Prompt : Survival

I know having and not having

Is very subjective.

Many are satisfied

With what they have

And many are not.

In one sense,

It is difficult to say,

What exactly is poverty.

But when even the basic necessities

Of life are not satisfied,

That is the tragedy of life.

It is just survival

From day to day.

What does it mean

To really struggle

To fulfill

The basic necessities of Life

Which many of us take for granted?

Not thinking of the future,

Just survival,

From day to day.

The feeling of utter hopelessness

In not being able to see light

At the end of the tunnel

Narrow, straight and dark

With no changes at all.

That is life.

That is poverty,

Just survival from day to day,

The tragedy of life.
