Try To Fly

Take a chance
Try to fly
Stretch those wings, Icarus
Try to fly

The sky is not so very big
The fall is not so very far
Come back again in another life
Try to make the same flight
With new wings
With new sight
Full of the same fight
That put you in the cold sea
That threw you against colder stones
Though you had hoped and hoped,
Flailed and flapped
So keen
To finally be

How glorious the scene
When you finally fly
On wings strong enough to sail a circle
Around the blazing sun

I am a student in Miami, Florida. Painting is my other love. My first book, Sketches of Someone, is available through Thunderune Publishing.
