There once was a man and every morning
That man looked at the sky in hopes that
He would fly but his mean, sly neighbor would
Say, “old man you will never fly because you are
Going to die” but every time that old man just
Says, “I will fly and you will die. For I have
Faith and I will soon fly”. “Ha the mean sly
Neighbor said for you will never fly for
You will soon die and I will be the one to fly up and touch the sky,”
“Oh no says I for I will fly right up and touch the sky.
And soon be back to look and cry”. “Why do you cry said
The mean sly neighbor” “because if I don’t learn to fly I
Will have to cry and cry until I do fly cause then I will
Be able to fly so high that I will die and I will be with
My loved one who learned to fly before I.
So that we may fly into the sky forever
forever be together

I found this work to reflect a positive attitude, embrace goal setting and display determination in the face of conflict and in spite of others who might attempt to discourage. Keep up the good work. Hope to see more of your thoughts.
