You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?
The night is ominous…dark and still
The snow , makes me cold ,makes me quiver ;
The crisp , frosty wind , bites into my ‘will’
to flee the ruthless , dark hours , hither..
My feet are numb , my face pale;
But I trudge , I plod , I scamper on…
My heart beat slows ,my lungs about to fail ;
Till I recall the day my daughter was born..
A sudden gush of oxygen fills my veins ;
and my heart begins to throb again…
I will live through this , ignoring my pains ;
I shall not allow my vigor to drain.
I need to get back to my cozy home ;
to see them smile – my spouse and daughter ,
Now, come what may , wind or storm..
No enemy can , my hopes deter !
My eyes now gleam ,with happy tears ,
my heart overflowing with love and warmth ;
Till I finally overcome my unknown fears…
And am safely back – to my home , my hearth !
