You gave me wings and stood by me no matter what I went through. You always held me up and gave me strength and courage even when I didn’t see it.
You gave me wings to fly even though I didn’t use them. You have always been there for me but I chose to walk away. You always held me up while I held myself down for I didn’t want to see what was there.
I have chosen to fly; not knowing which direction to go but wanting to find my way. You have opened doors for me but I choose not to walk through them.
You’ve given me wings to fly and search for what is out there and yet I close my eyes to what has been in front of me. All this time I have been searching but I have not been able to see a thing.
I surrendered myself to myself. I had dreams but instead, I put those away for others because they mattered more than me. I surrounded myself with things that didn’t concern me and it just brought joy to others but not to me. I was using my wings, strength, and courage for them without realizing how unkind I was with myself.
The wings were mine but I gave it to everyone, when everyone already had their own wings to fly; and their own strength and courage. I allowed everyone to take away my wings, courage, and my strength.
I surrender myself and continue to surrender myself to my wings so that I am able to fly and see the truth within me. I will use the strength and courage to open new doors and find the one person that I was supposed to be in the first place. Today, I set myself free from all of those which I have allowed to take me away from myself. I say to you all, “Go find your own wings and fly in the direction you need to. You can do it with the same things I came with.”
There is a time when we need to say, “enough is enough.” I have seen enough tears and pain that comes with so much hatred. I have seen the darkness and now I want to see the light. Now, it's time to fulfill my life with my dreams, whether they are short or long. I am going to use my wings, my courage, and my strength so that I can complete what I was meant to.
I know words can be wasted but no more. I will take my wings and fly as far as I can. I know life will hit me but I promise when I feel helpless I will use what was given to me so that I may be able to pick myself up again for life will continue going on. You allow me to fly upon the sky and see the beauty that I hold within myself while showing me the knowledge and wisdom I carried all this time but was unable to see.
I will fly with my wings and go as far as I allow myself to go; this time following my own dreams.
