Favorite Quote:
As the eagle was killed by the arrow winged with his own feather, so the hand of the world is wounded by its own skill. -Helen Keller

Sometimes I look into the sky
And want to fly away
But I didn't have the wings
To take me among the clouds

So I searched the earth
In every crack and cranny
But even though I looked so hard
My wings were nowhere to be found

I sat a long time
Looking into the sky
Longing to drift above the trees
And gaze upon life below me

I knew I would remain unhappy
Until that wonderful day
When I felt the freedom of a bird
Soaring high above the world

The day came after much patience
And almost losing faith
But I held fast to my beliefs
And the hope that I would fly away

Now I have my wings
To take me among the clouds
Gazing upon life below me
And soaring above the world
