Success Day

“Those who follow me here, will know of the mental struggle, the failings and the tumultuous journey through life I’ve been through. For me looking back on all that made Friday so special. Friday was the day Holly Ward investigates, the Steam Train went fully live. It was a small success torn from a pit of despair. A victory when all hope seemed lost. Proof that if you keep fighting, if you keep moving forward as best you can — You will get there! Keep fighting my friends!”

I wrote this poem in answer to the following prompts:
FOWC with Fandango  — Terrible
Your Daily Word — Juju
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Pragmatic

Success Day

For years I’ve wallowed in terrible Juju
Liquid fears, failings, a curse or two
Angry tears as my dreams withdrew
Internal fires burned as the darkness grew

Only friends kept me on the go
So, cleanse your wounds and glow
Light transcends darkness as you grow
That happiness lends a successful flow

Keep going in a pragmatic way
Ever rowing toward the victor’s soiree
Always knowing you’re worthy and doing okay
Start blowing your trumpet on success day
