A poem about loving what you do, helping to achieve your goals


A butterfly sitting on the grass..asked some others that went past..”I seem so much larger than you, can you tell me what to do?”…”How can I fly as I high as you?”…”& with  the grace that you do?”…The butterflies then replied..”It depends how hard you try”…”& if you set your goals too high”…”Only set what you can achieve”..”Your frustration it will then relieve”…”Although your progress may be slow”..”Your abilities will surely grow”…”Don’t rush to be like others or what they can do”…”They may be very different to you”…”They may have more strength & grace”…”But the lives we live are not a race”…”They may have more stamina or beauty”…”But there’s something you can’t see”..”Hidden deep within our soul”…”That helps us to achieve our goal”…”It’s the LOVE we have, for what we do”…”Maybe if that LOVE grows in you”…”The LOVE you need, to want to fly”..”& join the others way up high”..”Put your fears & doubts aside”…”or any sadness that you hide”…”Just feel happiness, when you look to the sky”…”see the clear blue ocean way up high”…”you’ll see the SUN, then feel it’s warmth & LOVE”…”shining down on you from above”…”embrace the LOVE that it will freely give”…”to you, to help you, LOVE & LIVE”…”Stop sitting back hiding in the shade”..”if you want to achieve a higher grade”…”stand up & spread your wings wide”..”& share any LOVE that you hide”..”What you give, you will receive”..”your doubts & fears, it will relieve”…”then you’ll feel more LOVE coming to you”…”to help you achieve all you want or can do”…”then you’ll fly way above the ground”…”as you feel & embrace all the LOVE that’s around”..”in everything you touch or see”…”then you can fly, Just Like Me”..
