I love to fly free but scared I will fall.
With faith I jump in but just cower and crawl.
I hope against hope that this time is the last,
The last that the trust in myself falls dead flat.
With bravery I dare and deliberately seek,
The descended reality, dark and bleak.
How simple it is to feel so alone.
Like no one can see you, yourself to atone.
But did you forget that all of us sink?
That we all find despair in the bitter dark deep?
We all have our pit, feeling no one is there.
Unending it seems, the pain of despair.
Remember, remember, we all feel that pain,
Unfiltered, unsheltered and full of disdain.
But when we recall that we all feel the same,
We find warriors, our heroes, our path to reclaim.
Try again one time more.
We’re here and we see you,
Rising up from the floor.
Connection is power and power is light.
Don’t forget your team here,
Helping you to take flight.
