Colour is optional..believing in yourself is not !!!
never under estimate your strength.....
It was blustery cold, yet the earth was still..
as I watched it all going down the hill..
where all was covered in deep white snow..
And your footprints marked out the way to go ..
My Dad was leading me on you see..
showing me things his Dad had shown he...
that all in life has another side..
And it’s best to walk and not always ride..
For with all there is to see you know..
Sometimes it’s all beneath the snow..
Maybe a rabbit hole or such..
Or maybe something to never touch..
And yet when it all has changed from cold..
When the sun shines and it seems so bold..
And the snow turns into a mush you see..
There beneath the Apple tree sits a blossom that’s so pure and white..
You soon will know again everything ‘s all right....
And struggling as we all must do ..
no matter if it ‘s me or you..
For we must never stop..
Just like the pure white snowdrop..
And just like the old mustard seed..
It’s told in books we often read..
Yet... so small it has to fight too..
The same as I and the same as you..
So don’t give up when facing the test..
Just do what you can and give it your best..
Then just when you’re about to bloom....
You will learn.. oh... so very soon..
Perhaps in a pot... Or a bright. sunny spot...
That you are stronger than you thought.......
