LEARNING TO FLY

Updated: May 9, 2023

A beautiful poem shared by Jayne WB

I was afraid to be alone,

until I learned

To love myself.


I was afraid to fail,

until I realized that I only fail

if I don't try.


I was afraid of success,

until I realized

that I just have to try

To be satisfied with myself.


I was afraid of someone's opinion,

until I learned that people always

have an opinion about me.

I was afraid of rejection,

until I learned to trust

in myself.


I was afraid of pain,

until I learned that it is necessary

in order to grow.

I was afraid of the truth,

until I saw the ugliness

of lying.


I was afraid of life,

until I experienced

beauty.

I was afraid of death,

until I realized

that it is not an end,

but a beginning.


I was afraid of my destiny,

until I realized

that I have the power

to change my life.


I was afraid of hate,

until I saw that it is nothing more

than ignorance.


I was afraid of love,

until it touched my heart

and made the darkness disappear

into endless sunny days.


I was afraid of ridicule,

until I learned

To laugh at myself.


I was afraid of getting older,

until I realized

that I gain more wisdom every day.


I was afraid of the future,

until I realized

that life is getting better and better.


I was afraid of the past,

until I realized

that it can no longer hurt me.


I was afraid of the dark,

until I saw the beauty

of the light of the stars.


I was afraid of the light,

until I learned that the truth

gives me strength.


I was afraid of change,

until I saw that even

a beautiful butterfly

must undergo a metamorphosis

before she can fly.
