steel & feathers

time likes to peel away at our youth
stealing the strength of our hearts, once
made of steel, weakening wilted feathers in the sun
once in flight for seeking the truth, now
coming undone into the greatest making
live to die to life to death
a life worth living with struggle
lends to a death worth greeting
peacefully it all happens in one breath,
Icarus ready for the kill
falling from sky to soar into the sea
