Reach Out and Duck


Why not be a hero

Or take it on the lamb

Why not just speak outright

And let your actions slam


Give in to your dreaming

Make it to the apex

Give yourself a hand

May the mountain be your next


But those are dreams and wishes

All the things you think of doing

Limited by reality and cost

As short-lived as the tune you sing


There is never time enough

Or the natural ability

Many are there limits

As you go you’ll surely see


In the beginning you dream

No sky that can’t be reached

No limits to your ardor

No hull that can’t be breached


But time and time again

We battle with our limits

Can we overcome them

And blow them all to bits?


Here is for the attempt

To gain your every whim

And hoping you success

Without losing a limb
