these are lyrics from my song "touch the sky", inspired by one of my favorite poems, "on children", by poet Kahlil Gibran.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.
i've been so blessed to have parents who gave me the freedom to explore myself and my various passions throughout life. but they always made sure i claimed responsibility for any and all outcomes, including my failures. they believed the moment i placed blame on someone or something other than myself and my own actions, then i've lost my power to be able to learn from the experience and become a better human being because of it.
thank you mom and dad for being spot on...for not controlling me...for your endless, unconditional love and support...and most of all, for allowing me to fly.
