“Soaring Towards Success”

“Soaring Towards Success”

I glare towards the sky, and I observe a renewed breath of light.

I am engrossed in my own thoughts, and my wings begin to take flight.

I have troubled down the road of uncertainty, and allowed it to consume me whole;

However, today I soar above the clouds; because I am now a free soul.

Adversities may breach the road I am on, but I will not allow it to deflect my direction,

I will reach my ultimate destination, and I will not acknowledge any form of rejection.

My spirit is strong, but my fight is fiercer, and my wings will not collapse before I arrive,

Because with a strong will, comes a strong mind,

and with the two I preserve, I am sure to survive.
