The Journey

For the birds,
They can’t soar high in the clouds,
Without first learning
The art of flight.
To do that,
They are tossed from the nest,
To a new way of life.

For the musicians,
when they begin,
they squeak a bit,
but they eventually learn to sing.
To do that,
They must practice until they
Get it right, when they
smile and say, “I did it.”

Life is the same,
We all have valleys and summits,
We just have to learn
To see the light
In the dark.

Everyone struggles,
And has hard times,
We just have to wait,
Stop.
And see how far we’ve come.
And then,
turn back
And go farther.

~Em

  1. Great job! I enjoyed reading this! I like this stanza the most:
    “Life is the same,
    We all have valleys and summits,
    We just have to learn
    To see the light
    In the dark.”

    Thank you for posting it! 🙂
