Beyond Icarus

Hanging Heart 1
By Fernando Gallegos

Blind and simple fool
I built my greatness on lies
Bound my soul to the warmth of the sun
Bound my mind to my unconscious ego

I saw the horizon as my own
I felt the power to manipulate my destiny
I saw the earth as a stepping stone
The air as my own

I didn’t know what stumbling was
I didn’t know that pride could drown

Stepped off the edge
The edge of the unknown
Body rising
The heavens and I
For a moment were one

The heavens and I
For a moment were one
