vessels squeeze the flow of blood
the flower forms another bud
atoms swirl electric force
a river shapes a different course

lions show a row of teeth
courage sparks a pulse beneath
nature gives a super rush
to bring about a sudden gush

it takes a will to win the race
never quit the forward pace
instinct steers the way to thrive
holding to our inner drive

if danger threats to block our path
we follow through with vicious wrath
the smallest being can fight a foe
and summon forth a mighty blow

facing odds that seem immense
then scale and leap the tallest fence
the mind can choose to halt or go
we best succeed not saying NO
