"She flies with her own wings."

Alis Volat Propriis

          I am a part of this world
          a mere speck of dust
          I am walking a destined path
          I longed to detour
          and find my own road
          one that never ends
          my feet are glued on the ground
          I am in despair
          but I can only go up
          I am looking forward
          I have not looked up
          when the skies have
          been staring at me

          ah, right
          I did not know before
          I realised it now
          I know nothing
          I can never be satisfied
          for in my head
          the tiny voices in my head
          they are saying things to me
          the world is round
          it ain't flat
          I can walk forever
          but I can also fly

          I finally found it
          after purposely getting lost
          not in this world
          but in my thoughts
          for it's true
          one who wanders is not always lost
          one who wanders always finds more
          don't look in the mirror
          you won't find yourself
          look around you
          and see your reflection
          all that is an extension of yourself

          beyond those freckles
          behind those smiles
          more than your dress
          or Apple's best
          life is more than that
          dreams are more than that
          you are more than that
          I am not your thoughts
          so do not listen to me
          but battle it out
          do not follow the winner
          follow your heart
