Oh those eagle wings

Ready to lift and fly

Yet, still you're here

In a butterfly's body

You scream for growth

But growth won't show

'Cause you can't force something

That's outta control

Oh those eagle wings

Spreading in grandeur

Waiting to jump and soar

But are you ready?

You must be but oh, honey

You're still in a butterfly's body

You can't change that, only time

So you'd have to wait for awhile

I was told once, that to reach for my goals I had to use the three Ps.

Patience, Persistence, and Practice.

Lovely poem.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on October 08, 2019:

Patience is sometimes a hard thing to learn, but if you rush things you may never reach your full potential or achieve your dreams. Nice poetry.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on October 08, 2019:

When the time is right, all will be well. There is no rushing anything in life.

If something is rushed it turns out wrong...wait for it.

Good read.
