Poem: How to Fly

This place, this place
This place of pain
This place where you must
lose to gain
In order to love
you must first hate

If you want to rise
you must first fall
If you want to be great
you have to start small

If you want to laugh
you must let yourself cry
Aching to be found
but always trying to hide

For new hellos
you have to say goodbye
You prefer the shallow
but are only satisfied when you can dive

To feel the sun
you must embrace the night
Yearning to jump
with a fear of heights

If you want the finish line
you have to sweat
Recognize pain
to find happiness

If you want to live
you must thrive
In order to thrive
you must first die

This place, this place
This place of pain
This place where you must
lose to gain
