"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go out and do it. The world needs people who are alive."


When will she learn,
that speaking out
is not a bad thing,
that it is okay to have an opinion?

When will she learn,
not to fear her words,
to let them run,
into the river of life?

When will she learn,
that judgment is a part of life,
and everyone in the world
is a contestant?

When will she learn,
to find her voice,
spread her wings,
and fly?

we had to write a piece like this for English a while ago and I was thinking back on a time in my life when I was the shy one who never said anything, and I was inspired to write this. Enjoy :)
