Just Stating The Obvious

Life is a cycle of joys and sorrows Ups and downs come and go, sometimes high, sometimes low Use your todays, don't think of tomorrows Failure is the stepping stone to success A win requires hard work, something we cannot shirk Challenges are needed to make progress A leopard cannot change his dotted spots Can't straighten a dog's tail, try it, you're bound to fail The speed of a ship is measured in knots There is no taste in the white of an egg Can't get taste without salt, for pickles it's default Love and trust must be earned, you cannot beg No one can number the stars in the sky The sand can't be counted, the rain not accounted Lightning can't be controlled by human eye No man can stop the bottles of heaven Clouds you can't number, or change winter to summer Can't give food to the young ones of raven God has deprived the ostrich of wisdom Her eggs she does not guard, her heart does become hard She's cruel, but that's her innate system The eagle mounts up, makes her nest on high The horse is not afraid, with thunder he's arrayed All these facts are obvious, can't deny 05.18.2021
