"I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying."-Oscar Wilde


She wants to be loved the way she loves
She wants to fly the way birds fly
She wants to be free like the lion
To live life and not cry

She wants to be just like the others
She wants to be different in her own way
She wants to believe in a good everything
And to her, here is what I say-

To be loved, that is how you fly
To be free, you never have to cry
Life is just a lesson, preparing you for your dreams
Feelings are God-given
You will soon learn what that means

When you love


The author's comments:
I was inspired by something a good friend of mine said that seemed so true. When she said it, it was like she spoke for all humanity.
