Sometimes we struggle.
Sometimes we just feel like we can’t do it;
Getting up again after being knocked down yet again.
Having our hopes dashed after being built up one more time.
Being broken on the rocks like Icarus after daring to fly high, too high.
But like a Phoenix we arise from our ashes anew,
Pain scorching away weakness again,
And we stand and spread our wings
And push off the ground once more
Daring to challenge the Heavens
And falling and failure.
Because that is
Who we are.
