The young man that dared to dream

There was a young man once.

He was a dreamer. He dreamed of many things. He dreamed of the stars.

One day, the young man decided to make himself a pair of wings, thinking that he could reach his dream.

The young man – foolishly, took off for the stars in great joy.

At first, it seemed to work. But then, in horror, he discovered that the stars burn and in agony he died.

This is actually a story with a happy ending.

The young man couldn’t have lived with this knowledge. After all, who wants to live with a broken heart?
