Icarus, Icarus, do we fall or fly?

December 26, 2016

A free fall is a free flight.
When we let go of our fear of falling and find the sun inside of us, life gives us wings.
A poem I wrote back in the days, accompanied by a study for a painting made by my beloved mother, Marlies van Dijk.


If I could live a lighttime

I would fly away to the sun

And follow it forever

Until my wings would burn


Icares, Icares

A fall from the sky

The sky has no limit

Don’t be afraid to fly


And when I close my eyes

I will wake up in a dream

Flowers in my bedroom

And love kissing my cheeks


Icares, Icares
Do we fall or do we fly?
Throw caution to the wind
Don’t be afraid to try

Take me by the hand
Through the land of neverend
In boundless space we’ll find
All that humanity left behind

Icares, Icares
Shine like a star in a nighttime sky
Life is too short for limitations
Don’t be afraid to die
