Try (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

This poem is posted for O.S.I. The theme for this week's prompt is try.

Have you forgotten
Brave, young soul
You were created to fly
Graced with wings
In adoration and love
Breathtaking plumage
Of a million horizons
The wind your guide
Destiny, speed
Try with all your might
Rise, take flight

Makes me think of all of us. We were made to fly. Born for it.

Recently viewed raptors migrating from a ridge top in Duluth. Amazing how they catch an updraft and soar.
I was reminded of this while reading your poem. A radiant and uplifting write! Thank you.
