If you can cry my friend
and if tears can fall from your eyes
you are then indeed ahead
of most people in life .
If you have the patience to know
that there is no shame in tears
and it is easier to let go than to hold on
you are then indeed
ahead of most people in life .
and if you have the courage
to bare your heart ,
letting the universe absorb
all your pain , wounds and suffering
you are indeed then
ahead , of most people in life .
For life my friend , is just like a paperboat
you can only float
if you are light .
