Give me time, and I will fly,

Maybe not according to your timetable,

Maybe not according to your rules,

But I will fly

Give me room, and I will expand,

Beyond your wildest dreams…

…that is if you had any for me,

Give me space, and I will move,

Beyond the boundaries of your mind,

And beyond the boundaries of mine,

Give me time, and I will, I must, fly.

Inspired by an Enviison project that I supported in 2006. I had the privilege of working with an excellent group of young women at Burntwood School in London. The words of this poem came after I attended their final project. – A Recycled Fashion Show
