Seeds of Greatness
When life becomes a barren field
And grief is all too much to bear ~
When every dream you’ve had has vanished,
Crushed beneath a load of care.
Hold on to all the good you know,
Be true to all that’s in your soul,
And when the odds are stacked against you,
Keep your eyes upon that goal.
For greatness lies within your soul,
It slumbers, waiting for the day
When you call it from its sleep
To chase the dark of night away.
So rest within that dark cocoon,
Though black and cold it may well be …
And know that someday you’ll emerge
With magic wings entirely free …
