The Daily Prompt – Survive!

She alighted from the plane exhausted

Filling nauseous and dizzy

Change has arrived to take away her naivety

It was her first time abroad

Jolted by the shock that awaited her arrival

The slap of autumn cold on her skin felt like the scorch from the sun

It was like running away from the frying pan

And jumping into fire itself

The crippling cold must be her new demon

She felt an intense rush of her adrenalin

Only yesterday the dry Harmattan wind ruffled her charm

Now, a new culture lay before her troubled mind

How will she survive the ordeal?

How will she live so far away from home?

Will she survive without Mama’s pot of soup?

She knew she must fight her fears

She knew she must slay all her demons

She must plunge herself into this new adventure

Thus, survival became her new song


Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Survive.

Peace and Love!
