I am the person you kept off the cliff for fear I would fall and die. I am your little girl. The baby chick that had grown up frail as china. But, then I went away. I learned what I could do if I only tried. You couldn't hold my hand because we were just to far away.
And now, when I come back, that cliff you showed me. Well, it's not that scary anymore. But still you try to hold on. You hold onto your little china doll, but she's so much stronger than that now. Your little chick is ready to fly. And, I know you aren't ready. But, I am. I know that I can do it. I can fly if only I could just jump.
What you keep seeing is that tiny girl you made sure would never break. But, I grew up. I'm ready. Yet every time I make it to the cliff, your fear holds me back. All the while, my soul aches to try what you (rightfully) fear for me.
You need to let me try....
