Secret of Survival
From nature comes a secret of survival.
While some will falter and fall from a perfect perch,
others will rebuild each nest destroyed.
While some give up without reason,
others achieve greatness in the face of doom.
Some will go on soaring though left alone,
gaining strength from the struggles of their flight.
Survivors seem to sense the sun behind the clouds,
weathering a storm just to glimpse a rainbow.
On the wings of life there are gentle currents and rough winds.
Survivors float and fight as each day dictates,
their hearts set determinedly on the horizon of hope.
The light they follow is their will to live,
The reward they receive is life itself.
