When I started writing this poem, I wasn't really sure what emotions I would feel while composing it. I sat around for a while and had to think about all the facts that I heard in the video. When I finally began writing, I had three different pieces of paper sitting in front of me with different lines on every single page. In my opinion, when I wrote this poem I only used periods when I really wanted to stress the thought of what is being said. When finally finishing the poem, I realized I had the same feeling (only not as strong) as Philippe had. I believe walking across the twin towers like he had was a huge accomplishment that I was even excited about. It's really neat when I hear all the wonderful accomplishments of history happen in the United States.
I came out from darkness and into the light,
My dreams were many but this one was unique,
Studying the towers for about eight months,
I knew this dream could be real.
In 1974, Tuesday August 6th, the heavy crates were lifted up,
The bow and arrow flew across with that fishing line,
August 7th I stepped out on that line,
walking the towers from peak to peak,
while overlooking the city I loved so much,
Hearing all the whooping and hollering,
I couldn't help but to smile,
I finally gave the towers publicity that Guy Tozzoli always wanted,
Even though I did it all for me.
After crossing the wire eight different times and my dream being complete,
I finally climbed down where they all surrounded me,
They instantly arrested me, but it was all worth it,
Because in the end, they just let me be free,
The whole city of New York was there to applaud me,
This dream was as big as the towers.
You need dreams to live, so therefore I leave you this,
Promise me you'll never stop dreaming.
Then maybe one day, your dream will be a reality.
