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 oftentimes we can get the melody of what we want if we allow the cacophonies to come Dec. 5, 2012 Form: Suzette Prime First Place Contest: Suzette Prime: Prime Numbers and Philosophy Judged: 12/14/2012 Poet Sponsor: Suzette Crous

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.
