When you really think about it
A great deal of things happen in a year.
One whole rotation around the sun
Winter Spring Summer and Fall.
People change and grow
Just like plants reaching for the sun
Trying new things
Jumping out of planes
Trying new food.
But also people lose.
We lose jobs cars and
Even when we don’t want to.
Like a baby bird jumping from the nest for the first time
Thinking there will be a splat but at the last second
We spread our wings and fly.
