Jee_Blue1875: A reason for reaching for the unattainable.

Reaching the unattainable is for me about escape. I have found myself often reaching out to the stars, wishing to be amongst them, to be able to live as equals with those celestial giants, though sometimes it leaves me feeling like Icarus, so close to the old gods but crushed by forces greater than me.

Another reason is purpose. Most peoples lives are usually just a grey, shapeless haze and looking towards a higher goal allows us to shape our fates; reaching for the unattainble arms us with purpose, like pilgrims or crusaders, all seek something greater than themselves.  

The End
