You came to this earth to stretch out 

your arms towards the stars 

and conquer the unfathomable 

abyss of time's doubts ...

The heard ignores the heavens 

and the clumsy superman 

in the noise of the crowd  

yearns for the solitude of endless spaces...

In the kingdom of clouds ,

the eagle is master of  it's  fate...

Were you the regenerated man

who questioned  the angel ?

or this celestial creature deprived of wings 

who  unlearnd  to walk  ?

 Maybe ,Just this heart of metal  

  and thought of burning oil  

that had forgotten the child 

who  dreamed of the stars ?

Charles Lindbergh ,you've got

your wings back and you're soaring

on the ocean  of eternity ...

You were   the pilot of your life

and not the dreamer and passenger,

but its a story of men from a bygone age ...
