And just for thought...
I shoot for the sky and miss more than I like
But it never stops me from trying over again
Because I am a true testament
That eventually I will stick.
She looks at me as if I am the enemy
Where she once looked at me like I was her hero
Knowing that I must brush her off
I must ignore the looks, the smart comments
Because one day I will be her hero again
And I know I will never stop aiming for her sky, too
I push myself beyond my means
Because for you I would do anything
For him I would go anywhere
And for her I will never allow my knees to touch the floor.
I want so much more
But I know I may only taste half of that
Because life has jaded me enough
To accept the reality of my part in this life
So I will play this part with honor
Knowing one day my applause will come in.
For you I give you this smile
And for him I offer my open arms
But for her I will give my life
Knowing one day she will understand this love.
I wish I could do nothing but laugh all day
Bounce on those clouds that float above me
Dance along side the wind
That whispers to me when I close my eyes
And sing to the cartoon birds I only imagine landing on my shoulders
But I know the difference
Between what is in my heart and my head
Accepting my struggle is a badge of honor.
Nothing to be ashamed of
Because in that darkness I was given a gift
This gift of flight but not in the way I imagined it to be
I soar every time I stand, every time I breathe.
So for you I offer you these tiny pieces of me
For him I invite in
And for her I keep on shooting towards that sky
Knowing I fail more than I succeed.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
