I stumbled upon this poem the other day and knew I had to share it with you. No matter the circumstance you find yourself in today, may your soul find reason to sing and strength to fly. You are more able than you think.
The Daring One
By Edwin Markham
I would my soul were like the bird
That dares the vastness undeterred.
Look where the bluebird on the bough
Breaks into rapture even now!
He sings, tip-top, the tossing elm
As tho he would a world o’erwhelm
Indifferent to the void he rides
Upon the wind’s eternal tides
He tosses gladly on the gale
For well he knows he can not fail —
Knows if the bough breaks, still his wings
Will bear him upward while he sings!
