Keep – a mantra

Fredriksborg fortress

Keep fighting
Life will give nothing for free
Keep proud
Only you know the battles you’ve fought
Keep hope
That spark keeps dark depression-clouds away
Keep love
Cherish, care, mother-love yourself, no guarantee anyone else will
Keep faith
Believe in yourself
You’ve got this!

A 44 word quadrille written for Kims prompt at dVerse ~ Quadrille #91.
The word was Keep and since I still had my reworking of Barricades swirling in my mind. I ended up writing a companion piece.

A mantra for those who keeps getting struck down by life and have to keep going anyway!

  1. Great words to encourage
    are shared in this post
    you talk to help the people
    to turn on light and hope
    if you have that feeling
    is cause for you it’s a most
    supporting & helping others
    realizing most of their issues
    aren’t real, more like a ghost.

  2. The Fredriksborg fortress looks interesting; I imagine the view is great.
    The repetition of ‘keep’ is effective and I especially like the lines:
    ‘Keep hope
    That spark keeps dark depression-clouds away
    Keep love
    Cherish, care, mother-love yourself, no guarantee anyone else will’.
    Good advice.
