Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic
I heard a person once tell me that, Icarus is the one person they truly looked up to, because, unlike most people, he chose to live his dreams and failed, instead of dying content with the reality he had been given. I dedicate this, to the dreamer, to the Icarus in us all; us who, not only exist and survive, but actually choose to live.

Breathe in the pain
and exhale the awakening of endurance.
Stand sure in yourself,
embrace the struggle
and be humbled by your sacrifice.
Act without thinking twice
Your chance is now
And it only comes once.
 
This, my friend, is not advice,
just the passing thoughts of a mind
that’s grown wise over time
from starring straight into the sun
asking for nothing but a touch.
