You Can Fly

The soft sultry voice 

and the beat of India's

music charm and 

provoke. We all have 

lessons to learn and 

are inspired by her 

words. Self esteem, 

or the lack there of, 

can keeps us from

soaring the skies,

much like being 

chained to a wall. 

When things upset us

we learn to forgive. 

Seeing the beauty 

of growing old is a 

miracle. For all of us, 

both our bodies and 

minds always need 

to keep healing.
