Don’t Count Me Out So Fast

I’ve been brought down to my knees.
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking
But I can take it.
I’ll be back… Back on my feet
This is far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me.

You must learn to crawl before you can walk, to walk before you can run, to run before you can dance. What she really wanted to do was fly. Maybe not in the most literal sense of the word, but to fly… That would be truly extraordinary, and she wanted to be truly extraordinary. The urge to fly hit her shortly after she drove her first car, hand out the open window, fingers pressed closely together. She could literally cup the wind in her palm. She couldn’t see it, or touch it…not really. But she knew it was there, just as real and as true as anything else in the world, and she wanted it.

Dancing was a second choice, really, but in all her years, it was the closest she could get. It gave her the same weightless, giddy feeling that she imagined the birds experienced as they sliced through the air as easily as a knife through warmed butter. She suffered cuts and bruises, sprains and breaks-the kind of stuff that no one really talks about. On most nights, she came home aching in places that she didn’t know she had, but even then, she couldn’t help but look at the window and smile as the sun sank below the horizon. She knew how it felt to dread the next day and relish it at the same time, and she did, because she knew that there would be pain. There would be pain, but every day, every passing second that ticked away on the clock brought her one step closer to spreading her wings and soaring.
