La Calaca a Day - #22

(Image found here)

Enduring Success

I stand amongst the courageous,
who've rallied despite the rain.

Who've succeeded and prevailed,
ignoring all the pain.

Marking each of life's lessons in totem and ink.
Making souls soar, making minds think.

For it has not proved enough to survive, to bow down or demure...
So we mark ourselves and boast, our achievements...we endured.

(Rebecca is hosting La Calaca a Day for the month of October.  You can participate here.).
