Controlling the Spiral

I was always a driven person
Which is why I wanted to fly
Given I had the strength and ability
To live my life in the sky
My dad had always taught me
That failure is very dark storm
To avoid the clouds that always thunder
To stay in perfect form
One faithful day I received news
That broke the bond I had made
Like that the leadened clouds moved in
For no one would come to my aide
In pain and panic I took a nosedive
In the stable plane that was my life
She was the very wind beneath my wings
I had lost my faith, plans, and wife
In dizzy spiral I crash landed
At the bottom of my regrets and mistakes
I no longer could see the future I had
For ground beneath rattled and quaked
My son the last of my fire
Had inspired me to take to the skies
I loved this boy with all my heart
He was a man, helpful and wise
Now I peacefully travel the tailwinds
With a new wind beneath my wings
For I have faith in what life holds
What today and tomorrow will bring
