Try to fit in and be like everyone else appears to be.
Forget they were attracted to you because you appeared to bring
that special something different that was needed…
the part of you that made their hearts sing.
If you are too different the fear is that you won’t last long.
If you’re the same, you make sure the status quo
is the only game everyone plays to belong.
Then you hide who you are and no longer soar.
…Or you can fly high and see what is not being seen.
You can leap to the future and be what has not been.
You can let others see you jump so they know
what is possible when we are really willing to go.
