Taking Flight

If you ask

the right questions

the answers you seek

will be revealed to you.

Set aside

the self-blame

the critical judgments~

and see the wisdom

you hold now

that you were blind to

before your stumble.

Don’t struggle

with the reality of what is.

Accept it, absorb it

and transform it

into the stone that sharpens

the edge of your dream,

allowing you

to cut through the pointless,

the useless,

the undeserved blame.

The opinions of those

who no longer attempt to fly

should be allowed no power

over the spirit of one

who can’t keep herself

from trying.
