Cloud 9 - Poem by Lyn Paul

Cloud 9
So hard it is
To achieve
To be so high
Forever
Is Impossible

At some point in life
We reach Cloud 9
With the abundance of joy
We want to last
Forever

But we can fall
It can be gradual
Or Sudden
Without warning

Through this
We must find the steps to take
For we know we learn
From every fall

With endless possibilities
Awaiting
So reach for the highest

We grow from every fall

    Yes we grow taller from a fall ESP if we think as positively as your great awesome uplifting poem suggests and inspires. Life is cloud 9, cloudburst and hail too. Kudos. Had to read more from u before I disappear into life. Take care. (Report)Reply

    This is a very inspiring poem Lyn. Some of our greatest lessons have come from being knocked down, we get back up a little stronger. (Report)Reply

    An inspiring piece
    Of aiming high in clouds
    Yet sometimes we can just be happy
    Down a little at Cloud 8
    ;)

    Achieving anything high is really impossible but this can be possible with effort and hard work. Strong trust on self courage is definitely necessary. We can grow and with endless possibilities we can touch the height. Having high hope is necessary in life. This poem carries deep theme. Thanks for sharing this...10 (Report)Reply

    i think i would combine all of the last eight lines into one long stanza. :)
    It's a very optimistic poem. i am tempted to go outside NOW and fall down a few times! ! ! it sounds like the right thing to do. but it is cool outside and getting dark, sooooooo i think i'll just go to the basement stairwell (the top) , turn on the light, and FaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaLLLLLLLLLLL.
    CRASH!
    i can feel myself growiNG NoW! ! ! to MyPoemList. bri :)
