The transition between the lower class to the upper class

The miserable sky,
Reigned upon its life
There it was, scavenging
for fortunes,
Fur keeping it warm, in the
Winter setting,
This was no place for it,
It was the place for the
Oppressed,
What had it done to deserve
this, this torrid well being
 
It will change…
 
It knew what it wanted,
What it wanted had to be a
Commodity,
Deprived of greatness, this was
its time
This was its opportunity,
Time to grasp
Hold it tightly and
This will be its world,
The tides are turning
 
It is changing…
 
All the elements combining to
Successful effect,
It was the purpose,
the determination,
the ambition,
the self-belief,
It was even more than that,
It was its continuous perseverance,
That the risk of death,
Came vastly fortunes
 
It has changed…
 
The tides have turned,
The sky a cheerful blue,
As the wonderful rainbow shined,
As it held the pot of gold, with a
Smile of a million dollars,
The setting a summer one,
It was now,
A masterly figure, in
the land of opportunity
 
Mentally it was capable
Of anything,
In the end, its never ending
Belief,
Paid dividends
 
The melancholy past a far
and distant memory
