Fly

Fly is inspired by and based upon Maya Johanna’s When The Sky, and is dedicated to any soul who finds themselves at a crossroads.

Listen to Fly by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Howl Instrumental by Florence + The Machine

If you stay just where you are
Then you will never reach your dream
Not until you learn to fight your battles bare of both your heart and feet
Let it be imparted
You’re a masterpiece
No question
True lovers of art will never see your sweet dreams lessen
Not when they can infinitely bless them to reprise
When every keen suggestion sets esteem within your stride

You have to be ready to go again
Control the zen that led you to these streams in the unseemly dead of night
When the sky is bled of light
You have to be prepared to say goodbye
Lift your hands above your head enough to touch it
Fly
No reason to remain on grounds of fears of years regressed
For every tear you ever shed
Was dearly kept then most sincerely wept
Keepsakes of each season dressed
In gown of great renown
The second that you felt and leapt and found

You have to let go of the need to feel defeated as this cheats the image sketched upon the pages of your mind
Just let it fade away
For it is better left behind
As you give powerful consent to travel blind
Guided by the light that you yourself are mystic guide
Lift your hands above your head enough to touch it
Fly
Then it may be a delightful time to smile
For the wings were in your soul’s keep
All the while

When the sky is high
And crowned tides rise
There is a dream at very height of your incline
Lift your hands above your head and dare to touch it
Fly
You can have it all if you prepare to trust the light
In your heart of hearts
Still burning bright

  1. LOVE her!!!! And this:

    “You have to let go of the need to feel defeated as this cheats the image sketched upon the pages of your mind
    Just let it fade away”

    Thank you 🙏🏻

  2. Listened to your musical rendition and it’s a beautiful statement about encouragement, really meaningful for so many people who want to fly but feel their wings are clipped.
