View Full Version : Icarus Effect (Poem by me)

Icarus Effect

Everything happens for a reason
Even the change of season
To keep balance afloat
And flexibility remote
It's just mans simple treason

We are given laws
To protect from the unimaginable
Listen to Daedalus
Sometimes evolution needs a pause
Just because we have wings to soar
Doesn't give us the right to roar

Don't fly too high
You shouldn't have to cry
Our wings certainly wont last
Nor get passed
The stable wall that's nigh

Humanity needs to rest
And weep for the forgotten sleep
We're pushing everyone to their limit
Only to fall high from their summit

Very well written.

I also enjoy the poem of the Razgriz.
