Written in response to the daily prompt challenge – Morphing.
Language evolves. The meaning of a word can shift over time as we use it differently — think of “cool,” “heavy,” or even “literally.”
Today, give a word an evolutionary push: give a common word a new meaning, explain it to us, and use it in the title of your post.
Chosen word: Legends.
Legends: people living their daily lives; scaling life’s hurdles, fighting demons at night and rising at dawn to smile at a new day. Content in whom they are.
We often go searching for something exceptional, unique, different and without flaws to inspire us. I think this quest for perfection, for something without flaws has created individuals with multiple personality disorders, individuals with no personalities, narcissistic individuals e.t.c I also think that when people can’t manage or face up to these flaws they try to make them seem less disturbing, like a norm. Trust me been there and in some areas I am still there. But I am starting to think our flaws make us human, learning to discipline them is what turns us into legends.
“Legends blossomed whilst we lived
treading the unfolding path with determination and fairness.”
