They Could Soar

By: Corinne Smith

Page 1, I was playing the piano, creating a new song, when this poem suddenly came to me.

Sometimes we imagine

That we are not gifted

We have no talent


We are snared

Like a fly

Into a spider's web


Deceived by humility

Believing in inadequacy

Hoping for mere mediocrity


The web is sticky

Like glue on all sides

We cannot find an escape


Until one day

We sit down

And try


Over and over we

Try and fail,

Try and succeed


Finally there is a light

A brilliant light,

A talented light


We are no longer flies

But beautiful birds

Graceful and free


We soar to the sky

And our dreams appear

One by one


Until the sky abounds

With creatures who realized

They could soar.
