Wings of Hope!

In a dark corner a catterpillar sadly sings

If only I could only grow a pair of wings

If only I could grow a pair of wings.

I stand beside it listening to the song.

I have my own set of wishes,the list is too long.

I want confidence,I want strength,

I want to keep sorrow at an arm's length.

I want courage,i want want a goal to pursue.

above all,the hope to start anew,

the hope to start anew.

The better part of me I want to give.

I dont want to exist,I want to live,

I want to live.

And suddenly!

A twinkling star makes its way towards me,

I find myself in God's own company,

Life is no more the same,

I know my worth,

I know my aim,

I have given a try,

The limit is the sky,

Yes,I can look at the world in its eye.

I stand firm and smart,

Look the dream house effect has played its part.

I glanced at the corner as i passed by,

The caterpillar had grown wings,

It was a butterfly

And so was I.
