Arise

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Water
Drops from the sky
Yearning to reach the sea
It’s path always heading downwards
Tumbling

Humans
Are not water
Humans yearn for the sky
They strive and climb up and up
Struggling

Sliding
Down from the heights
Steps faltering and weak
Bringing us down into the deep
Failing

Thinking
Measure the path
Assaying obstacles
Planning with forethought and wisdom
Reason

Rising
Against the rain
Climbing the steep ascent
Aiming for the sky, for the stars!
Soaring
