A Brave Man’s Dream
In the year of 1974, in the cold month of January
there was a man named Philippe Petit.
The story is about a man following his dream
and taking on the impossible
this was not for a reward
it was for his own satisfaction
countless hours of studying
the twin towers, which stood a quarter mile high.
His goal was crazy for a 24 year old
crossing a 130 foot gap,
as mine is getting a stable job.
The towers were designed by Guy Tizzoli
and they were about to be crossed by Philippe
who said he was writing an article
Philippe got his 1 inch cable and
shot it across the morning sky August 6th, 1974.
Philippe was calm on the wire because
he practiced and studied very hard
so calm that he walked it an amazing 8 times
the people around him were spellbound said officer Meyers
he completed his goal with ease
Philippe said that you need dreams to live
and they are as important as bread to eat.
