A Poem

I decided this morning to fly!

Not caring what others thought of me, about me - or not. I'm going to fly today. Make light of my heart and let my spirit soar. Whatever they think of me will not kill me, bother me, or bog me down, because today I decided to fly!

Today I decided to do what needs be done. If they do it out of spite, I will do it to feather my wings; if they do it out of envy, I will do it out of love. If they do it to make me feel small, I will do it to fly far, because I decided today is a good day to fly!
