Elevated to a position on high
Maybe we could reach and touch the sky,
Avoid being hoisted on our own petard
We already live a life that has left scars,
Maybe could rise a little higher
Feel the sun’s incandescent fire,
Maybe this is something to which we can aspire
Or end up like Icurus with our wings getting burnt.
There are lessons in all of life that need to be learnt
And if we control our ego and keep it in check,
We may just achieve something yet.
If we dazzle and we sparkle and we learn to shine
Maybe we see the truth and not remain blind,
To the potential that we all have lurking within,
Our lesson for today is a voyage of self discovering.
