Spread Your Wings

New vistas open to my eye, 
I see beyond my tiny space,
I spread my wings, I learn to fly,
No more afraid, I've found my place.

Remember always to be free,
And tell yourself it's still your goal
To be the person you can be,
To live a life that fills your soul.

When doubters enter as they may
Just let them say their say and then
Politely send them on their way,
Continue on your course again.

The past is past, no more to live
If only you will let it go.
It's always better when you give,
Because your heart will grow and grow.

Allow new landscapes to spread out.
Take flight and soar above them all.
In doing this I have no doubt
That destiny will pay a call.

Thus make your way to paradise
By flying and receiving grace
From people who give good advice,
From souls who join you in your space.

I used to think I'd always lose
Because I often found discord,
But now I know that if I choose
I will be loved, will be adored.

And thus I know what must be done
To drift among the clouds above.
Give wings to friends, give them the sun,
And offer to them simple love.
