A Prayer of Optimism

And you walk through your patches
and pillars of green
and gaze at the sun
and it’s unyielding sheen
and the thoughts of the ages
run through your head
and you think of the moment
and the words that were said
and the dream of a lifetime
drifts up on high
and you reach for it’s glow
as you strecth t’ord the sky
and you feel that it’s drifting
and escaping your hand
and you think that you’re losing
all the things that you planned

but it will fly to your soul
and kiss your heart
and you’ll know that you’ve conquered
the most difficult part
you’ll find yourself there
and smile as you lie
and you’ll see that you’re travelling
the neverending sky

(from “Part Four: Tragic Glorious”)

Optimism? Wow. What a concept. Point is: there’s a lot of life to live. Keep reaching.
