The Transformation

Shed the clay that strives to be an anchor Tarnishing, but for awhile, the dreams of man Addled hopes can rise in the morning’s mist Instead of languishing beneath despair Replenished strength awakens the spirit With a simple drink from the Milky Way And flirtations with Perseus opens up Yielding beauty in heaven’s realm The grave that holds yet, a soul to Earth, Owns the judgment of defeat There is none, but one, that must decide How to build on wishes made Even when the faltering of darkness Shadows well the light of faith There is a spark that burns the night As gravity shows force, to mark a trail Rise! Rise, you fallen man! Strive to be among the stars -Virginia Mitchell Contest- STAIRWAY TO THE STARS (Acrostic) Sponsor- Linda-Marie The Sweetheart of P.S.

wow, what a GREAT job you did with this challenge. I think you should make the letters stand out at the beginning of each line so everyone can see that you spelled Stairway to the Stars going down. The message of this one is outstanding.
