Once Upon a Dream

ICARUS
A Man did Fly
Oceans pull us down.
If we fall in love with the sun - 
We fall from the sky.
But - in these dark days,
There is nothing left to learn
Except how to fly.
So - teach me to fly, 
Or cushion my fall below - 
To hell’s dark fire.

Writer's Note
I've never understood the Myth of Icarus, or maybe as a young boy, reading the story of Icarus and Daedarus, I took the wrong lesson from it. 
Yes, Icarus flew too close to the sun, but briefly, if only for a short while, he flew higher than any man had ever flown before. He lived more in those few seconds than if he had lived a thousand more years.
Yes, Icarus flew too close to the sun, but he still flew.
