A Seagull's Plight

a resilient soul
hoists his drooping wings
dreary but dreamy
soars far
so high
he keeps on searching for his illusive dreams
regardless of the storm and height of mountains
goes through miles away
in his equanimity
straight with vision of sunrays
on  plight are failures
not too bad
tries again
the mighty swords in his heart
so much patience and love help him to survive
in every  vicissitude and kinks of his life
we  can get the melody of what we want
if we  allow the cacophonies to come

    Thank you my sis and everyone here! Cacophonies means noisy and very loud sounds just like what you create when still trying to perfect your skills in musical instruments. Again, million thanks and good night. Sorry if I can't stay long here on soup because I'm still recovering from flu.
