Lyrics of Born to Fly

I've been telling my dreams to the scare crow
About the places that I'd like to see.
I say, "Friend, do you think I'll ever get there?"
But he just stands there smiling back at me.


So I confess my sins to the preacher.
About the love I've been praying to find.
"Is there a hazel-eyed girl in my future?"
And he says, "Boy, you've got nothing but time."


But how do you wait for heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground?
When you know that you were born,
You were born to fly!


My daddy, he's grounded like the oak tree.
My momma, she's steady as the sun.
Oh, you know I love my folks, but I keep straining down the road.


Just looking for my one chance to run.
Yeah, cuz I will soar away like the blackbird.
I will blow in the wind like a sea
I will plant my heart in the garden of my dreams.


And I will grow up where I'll wander wild and free.
But how do you wait for heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground?
When you know you were born,
You were born to fly!


This song matches the thoughts in my mind at present.

Meri zindagi mai gati, tezi, ravaani, raftaar, speed, thrill, challenge, adventure chahiye.

I'm spending largely useless hours in office, doing nothing! What am I doing with my life? Why do I ask that question to myself daily? Why am I not satisfied? Why am I not happy? What will make me happy? Money can't buy me love. When have I felt happy. Let me analyze this, I'm happiest when I'm constructively occupied! When I'm doing something which, shows definite results or makes others happy, gives them guidance and encouragement. I'm happy when I'm teaching, explaining, interacting with people. I am the kind of a person who has a lot to share and I need to be doing something where I get to interact with people, develop and implement new ideas.

I can't sit in office doing nothing. This project is going on a directionless path and, it will be this way for a few months or so. I need to go to Bombay. I want to work in Bombay. I should apply for positions in Bombay.

I have to spend a largely useless day in office. I can do a lot of things which will have no end result. Like for example, prepare this list and prepare that list and this and that. I don't want to do unnecesary documentation for the sake of keeping records which won't even be used.

I have spent almost six months here and I have learnt zilch! What a criminal waste of time.

Welcome to another day in office!

Born to Fly! :-)
