When Comes Twenty-One

When comes twenty-one

Comes fighting for dreams

And finding oneself

In the swirling cycles of life

 

When comes twenty-one

Comes stretching of wings

And scraping of ego

Against  your stubborn will

 

When comes twenty-one

Comes starting at bottom

And building sturdy

A foundation of success and praise

 

When comes twenty-one

Comes leaving of safety

And learning again

The comforting power of prayer
