They say one has to be strong and stay positive; follow your heart till it leads you to your dream. They don’t say a heart can break on the way, a spirit bend, a body fall, having to exist among others as a stranger, go through exclusion or contempt for being strange, or even having to live up to the expectations of being admired for being yourself. Can you imagine your body fall? Arms desperately outstretched looking to soften the impact. Fear of fall confronted. You’ve stared into the abyss. Deep breath taken, body straightened with honesty and passion. There’s the first step towards the great void.
Now you fly…
