Overcoming them requires resilience, leading not only to survival, but also to flourishing. It's time to recognize the strength in enduring difficult times.

    Little Things | Daily Poetry

    There’s something so conflictingly amusing About the small things in life – The things that are so simple and yet modestly extraordinary. A warm cup of coffee during the cozy winters, A smile from a random stranger you met on the train, Drops of dew dancing on the leaves, Fresh rain and the heavenly smell of petrichor, Gentle waves of wind carrying echoes of hushed secrets, Adults laughing somewhere in the midst of a tiring day, Feeling at peace among a cacophony of noise and chaos, The hug of a friend releasing so many troubling thoughts in your head. But do we ever take a pause to cherish these little…

    Choosing Your Tribe: The Kind of Friends You Need!

    So last night, @alwaysaugst_medic and me had an in-dept discussion about how we are definitely the average of the people that we usually surround ourselves with. We develop the habits and characteristics that our friends empower within themselves. And so, it’s really important for you to find a community of people who are supportive and wish the best for you. People who want to see you grow. Friends and family who are non-judgmental about the choices you make and the things that you decide to prioritize at certain stages in your life. All in all, if you’re somebody who’s still building their tribe, you would do so much better in…

    Nostalgia in a Digital World | Daily Poetry

    Prompt: Imagine a world where technology no longer exists. Write a piece describing how society has adapted and the impact it has on individuals’ lives. Nostalgia in a Digital World. Rounded necks and tamed spirits, Losing track of all our merits, In a world of devices and tech, We’re always trying to make or break. Reminiscing achingly of times in the past, Before we were exposed to a community vast – When tech was but a dreamy bubble, Economical transformations, our only trouble. When close-knit relations mattered more, Likes, shares, comments; we kept no score. When we listened to the radio and read the daily paper, Walked around the dusk, some…

    Dancing Dawn | Daily Poetry

    Prompt: Imagine yourself as a ray of sunlight. Write a poem exploring the journey you take as you enter a room and illuminate the space. Dancing Dawn. Squeezing through the windows, a bitsy ray of white, Potent and full of life, sole glimmering beam of light. Invading a room pale dark, attempts to desperately fit in, Unaware of the surrounding dark, that lingers yet within. The blinds honor the path for the illumination it holds, The night gradually turns sullen, awaiting what shall unfold. Sunlight cuddles into the spaces, silently sitting still, Awaiting further visitors who shall lazily refill – And bring into our presence, the spectacle we call “day,” The…

    Innocence Unleashed | Daily Poetry

    Prompt: (Skyler’s Prompts) What’s an identity you’ve had since childhood? Innocence Unleashed. What was I like as a child – Some days docile, some days wild. Always screaming for what I felt was right, Tiny girl in pigtails, always shining bright. Could write through the noon, and read through the night, Some days she’d growl – but don’t worry, she didn’t bite. Would cry for tubs of ice cream, freezing and cold, Always lacked patience, couldn’t wait to grow old. A two-foot long kid, thinking she could scare, Everyone around her, with the fierceness of her stare. Dancing through the halls, she’d sing a little song, And push through academics, with…

    Joyful Reflections | Daily Poetry

    Prompt: (Skyler’s Prompts) Write a poem about something you love. Joyful Reflections. A train of thought passes, the mind goes wild, Wondering about moments that ever made me smile, And what about the world are the things that we love – Driving through the mountains, watching the world from above, Sitting by the sea, engrossed into a read, Watching birdies fly, soaring high and free, Walking into a cafe, the smell of croissants and buns, Curled by the window, embracing all the sun, Writing into my planner and checking off my to-do, Flowers, coffee and music; the ultimate aesthetic view, The fragrance of new pages, in the books I recently bought,…
