A child has soared the pale blue sky-
to his family, kisses of goodbye.
In the heavens, he then transforms
embracing the promises of fluid mold.
Captivated, the youth forgets
soils that have been his foster parents.
Man assumes a denser phase:
heaviness - has now prevailed.
The sudden shifts of cold and tension
beget him towards state of depression.
Palls of nimbus saturate;
darkness consumes strands of bliss.
Overwhelmed with august ambition,
tears have burst in all direction.
Hence, with this, a realization seen:
down, he plunges the bottomless pit.
The height of climb, the depth of fall-
a fact to be learned by one and all.
