To be more alive, you have to be less shy,
For, stigma and inhibition are like chains.
They keep us indoors, away from our dreams!
A wheelchair or a walker is no shocker!
Live, dream, fly, grab what you must.
Go and knock down your fears.
Spread the joy and wipe tears.
Go dear go, sky opens if you win your fears!
