The one who reaches too high, and falls from grace; he overestimates his own power, he reaches for his goals and dreams. Ambition drives him, wonder consumes him; he leaves behind the world on which he stood and flies toward the bright and brave new possibilities. He is reckless, but he is determined to see higher than his own realm of understanding and expectation. He plummets, sea-bound, and in the seconds of falling, he realises that it is too late. He cannot go back. He chose to leave his life behind.
But in those moments of otherworldly grace, of sheer ecstasy, of knowing that no human has felt this way before; is that not worth the fall?
He is not a failure; he is a pioneer. He is Icarus.
