“I know it's impossible. But I know I'll do it!”
Didn’t know how,
Didn’t know when,
Just knew that he was going to
Join the birds in the sky and fly south to north.
130 feet across, 1360 feet down,
Only in trust that the 1 inch path,
Would take him exactly
Where he wanted to be.
“They had become my friends.”
Looking up at Philippe,
Flying with elegance,
Gliding from cloud to cloud.
Nervous to see a man fall,
But very hopeful that he makes it across.
Not only once, not only walking.
8 times, 45 minutes, laying with the birds,
Only to take breaks in-between the dancing.
Petit didn’t just overcome a personal accomplishment,
But in doing so he showed just what it meant to
Go after your dreams no matter,
How impossible it may seem.
You can never turn down a challenge
“It's impossible, that's for sure. So let's start working.”
Walking the rope showed me,
Showed the world,
Dreams don’t end when you wake up.
I now want that.
I now want that moment,
When you come face to face with your dreams.
Making the choice of faith, whether or not
To take that leap.
And at the end of the day to be able to say,
“You need dreams to live, it’s as essential as bread to eat and roads to walk on”.
