falling is just a point of view

I write the quiet on my skin
the words take time to sink within
lost within the silence, I
struggle to relearn how to fly

I had my wings since I was born
lost them as I felt forlorn
but my song is one that carries on
I have the strength to greet the dawn


I think this is the most important thing I have learned this year. Falling is only ever a point of view.

It's nice you "have the strength to great the dawn"

The English say - "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall"

Ah, non, monsieur- then I flew.

It's actually Confucius - which was later channeled by R' Hutner on "sheva yipol tzadik"
