RISING

Trippings are signs
Of test of strength
Of test of determination
Of test of endurance
Of test of need
So like the eagle with broken wings
Know that walking and flying low with fowls
Is not supposed to be permanent
When they lie in roosting
Go to the mountain top and practice
Defy the odds
Fall and rise
Hurt and heal
Watch mates and learn
To rise, rise in style
Colours are made through efforts
And flying with visible colours take time
A fool may make societal grades that wise ones fail
Minds differ
A failure today prepares space for tomorrow
So rise instead of swimming in sorrow
And keep your eyes on the goal
Until you hold it in your hand
