"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


It's not until you fall,

That you fly.

It's not until your alone,

That your lonely.

You've got all control,

You can reclaim the crown.

There is beauty in life,

Misery never got anywhere.

Trust me just be rid of,

The monsters in your head.

In my mind I see,

Great things for you,

Put your thoughts to bed.

It's not until you fall,

That you fly.

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!

This is really good, with a powerful meaning behind it, I really love it.

Well, the point was, it's not until you try that you can fail. Yes the lonely part is a bit confusing but it has a greater meaning. I don't know how to explain it.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)
And the words I say most often: "Where was I?"

oh that was cool!
maybe you should have added some liberating notion to being alone. i personally find nothing about it liberating, but after you said falling is flying it was counter intuitive for the next line to be negative, and the first lines were great so don't change those
