Reach


Image from Titletrack.com

Just a little too many memories to fit, in the time I have to think on them - I've got a sec.

Just a mountain of possibilities to consider and storm, in the time I have to do them - I'm feeling worn.

Just a cloud of considerations and things to contemplate, in the time I have to want them - I boldly pontificate.

Too short on time and too much to think; keep me from getting any deeper than the kitchen sink.

Too many wishes, too many wars, and too many ropes to trip and tangle these oars.

Wanting to reach to the good, better, best.
Knowing that striving hasn't gotten me there yet.

Take a deep breath, fill those lungs to the peak,
and stretch a little further to where joy and action meet.

Help me to dream, help me to seek, help me to grasp toward those hopes that are
just
out
of
reach.
