Treasure Island

Eagle


I try to reach it but I can't it is flying to high.
I try to leash it but I cannot it is too smart.
I try to catch it but it seems impossible for it is too fast.
I see it fly up above the trees high above the land.
When you look at it you see inner spirit and pride.
A world completely different from your own but still it seems so much the same.
You want independence and freedom to make your own dreams.
You want to be fast enough to catch them and strong enough to believe you can succeed.
Your destiny is your own and yours alone to make.
The eagle is a symbol of what to give and how much to take.
Honor the eagle and be true to yourself.
Take pride in life and it will bring you wealth.
