Light at the end of the tunnel

PHOTO PROMPT -© Madison Woods

“The moon’s fight with the clouds captures my life perfectly. Every time I try to rise up and shine, something or the other pulls me down.”

John had always believed that he wasn’t cut out to work for someone in a regular 9 to 5 job. He aimed to do something different. Having ideas is one thing and implementing them successfully is another. While he never lacked in effort and perseverance, most of them didn’t really succeed after a certain stage thus impacting him monetarily and emotionally.

But he never gave up, hoping that one day he would strike gold.

Written for the photo prompt and you can read the other entries here.

Does moral policing actually work?

      Thanks Alok :). It’s all about having the will and the energy to keep going and make a difference.

  2. I love how you tied the photo, title, and first line all together.

      Thanks Candace. Good to know you liked it :). Welcome to my blog :D.

  3. Great analogy. And like the moon, after darkness comes full glory (hopefully 🙂 )

  4. “Never Give Up” – that’s the ticket! We all must be who we are, and keep trying to do what we are here to do. I believe in people who try – else how would they ever know whether they might have made it?

      True Bob. If we have the will to try and make a difference, only then can we succeed. It’s always easy to fall by the wayside and be an also-ran like many others.

  5. if he keeps at he may find the gold within
