Favorite Quote:
"Don't sepnd time beating against a wall, hoping to transform it into a door." - Coco Chanel

I search for words
but there are none to be found.
So instead of fighting back
I let my feet leave the ground.

I just keep on going.
and higher
and the higher I go
It’s more height
I desire.
I go

until I get to the moon.
Then gravity kicks in
and I fall all too soon.

Once I land on the ground,
of a world so grim and boring.
I remember that feeling.
That feeling of soaring.

Hmmm.  I sure would like to hear more from Sally11.  She has a very great way of looking at the world and expressing her feelings.
