This Is


dream for the future
reach for the light
shout to the heavens
    your will, your fight.

stretch wide your wings
embrace this very flight,
war with your foes
    make this the final night.

you can't live on wishes,
or subsist on sunlight,
you can't always win,
    but you can stand and fight.

I don't think of first,
my dreams never last,
I'm closing in on second,
    but he's far beyond my class.

I don't think of winning,
I'll never breach the stars,
I'm just a voice, it is my choice,
    to reach--instead--your hearts.
