Learning to Fly
Go softly on the wind,
lift unlabored
as you can.
Glide across rippling grass;
no need to worry
about height or gain.
Change direction
 smooth and quick,
just as shorebirds turn.
Rustle tips of tallest trees
and dip between
their tangled vines.
Bound aloft to unclouded skies,
above bitter streams
of sanguine life.
Come down when ready
and not before
and let no one say...
You can't do that.

This poem has such an important message.  No one should ever let anyone tell them that they are incapable of achieving something.  This poem really was inspiring, and filled with beautiful, imaginative images.

Self actualization, against common opinion gives life soar and be free.  Excellent.

Now this is what we all need to hear. To fly, to let

go and feel free in our own time. To land when we feel the need.

Many lessons within this poem dear. I would love ot fly ore the

lands and land in a secluded spot where no human resides, to

just take in the silence and absorb all beauty around, then take flight

lazily back to home to tell the tales of my journey. Let them tell me

I can't!! I am one to show them different!

Great and peaceful flight here.

I'm one of those who if you tell me "you can't" I will do it just to prove you wrong. hehe Yes we all can fly but we have to want to.

My dad use to say its a challenge nothing is difficult a phrase i have adhered to throughout my life. You can do that. Never say cant.

Soaring when you're told you  can't...Proving the world wrong...That's what it's all about!

Hugs...and fly, like a wonderful, free eagle!

Sunshine :o)

 We all have to learn how to fly ... both  weak wings at a time.. We have to step off  and try our wings just like a baby bird that has fallen from the nest...
Wonderful poem...
