Defeat in the Dirt

I thought I saw a ripple in the sky

before I came crashing down

a ripple of hope, breath of a dream

I’ve got clouds in my mind

while tasting the ground

It would seem

I have failed

in this flight that I’ve taken

Defeat in the dirt

brings questions unkind

In spreading my wings

have I been mistaken?

Persistence is born of true hearts endeavour

Effort renewed by need and desire

This time I think I’ll try to fly higher

If I must I’ll keep trying all the days of forever
