Poetry Corner: National Poetry Day -Higher


I dreamed big, set my goal so very very high,
I slipped a little, I fell a lot, I did not die.

I dared to dare, I stepped out in faith,
There were no shortcuts to success for me to take.

I reached out to grasp a future full of stars,
I raced and surged, I flew past Mars.

I fell a little, then I fell a lot,
Everything I had, I had not got.

I kept on falling, crashed into the Moon,
Take one last look, I will be gone again soon.

I will shake myself off, dust myself down,
Determination lights my face, there is no frown.

Come fly with me, come fly both day and night,
Dare to strive, come with me, let your dreams take flight.
