If we remind ourselves of our imperfections
Tell us we’re not good enough
Punishing the fragile ego
Life becomes a suffering.
But what if we can be for changing
If answering setbacks
Means leaving outside the ego
The enemy of courage locking us in a wallow.
Instead, why not surrender and accept
On hand, a willing heart
To life’s irregular cracks and weathering
We’ll see the play of her seasons
And witness the glory of her possibilities.
Let life not beat us down
Instead, accept her grand invitation
To climb onto her big, strong wings
Like those of the bald eagle
That flies towards the storm
Gliding higher, gathering more strength, more speed
Soaring above rain clouds.
Why let the ego keeps us on our knees
When we can fly above the gust.
Does not dwell on the size of her claws
Nor apologises for her flaws
Instead she opens up to the call of life
Accepting a lift from the stormy winds
Going higher, going further, she becomes more.
