NaPoWriMo 30/30: Because This is Life

Every morning we’re all still here.
Well, most of us. We’ve survived
the unknowable night when anything
can happen and often does. It used to be
monsters in the closet or under the bed,
now they’re our bosses, our elected officials,
even our neighbors and they prowl the day
as well as the night.

The news du jour catches us up on the past
eight hours, the latest mass killing, the newest
snafu in congress, the highest threat to humankind,
while a tornado or snowstorm has devastated

But still.

We get up and move forward. Eat breakfast
with our children, walk the dog, kiss our loved ones,
and keep an eye out for life’s little miracles because
we are one.

Prompt via “And finally, our final prompt – at least until next year! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something that happens again and again.”

That’s all!
