A poem that give permission to fail and above all rise above the ashes.
Rise above the ashes

We seize the moments in our lives to remember what we love

and find that special place to cherish what's given from above.

Our apprehension to dream past our reality,

afraid we will be disappointed in the truth our dreams bring.

Our hearts laid out for the world to see,

we hide our feelings tearlessly.

Gently like a flower in bloom,

we wither at the slightest breeze.

But give us love and nurture us,

we will flourish tall and bright and forever be enduring.

We vow to never stop dreaming with our eyes open.

Allowing our self the freedom of failing

and rising above the ashes of our lives
