Up Into the Ocean

icarus-2

They told me to first learn

How to walk and then run,

But I chose to fly,

Thinking of all that I could become

 

They told me that now wasn’t the time

That I must wait longer,

But I chose to take up the challenge

And grow stronger

 

They told me to embrace

What destiny had in store,

But I chose to write my own fate

Eager to achieve more

 

They told me I couldn’t

That the risk was too high,

But I chose to do it anyway

Praying as I looked up at the sky

 

They told me not to dream,

To listen to what they said

But I leaped into the ocean of hope

That hovered upon my head

 

I leaped into the ocean

Without learning how to walk or run

Flying with my own wings

Moving closer and closer to the sun….
