Sometimes we need to be realistic
Sometimes we need to see
That what we view in Dreamland
Is not what we can be.
Aspirations are all fine and good
If our goals are within reach
But when we go beyond that
They're but lessons meant to teach.
When goals keep getting difficult
And stall us in every action
It's wiser to just turn around
And change our whole direction.
Mount Everest may be the pinnacle
To which we would aspire
But Manitoba's Baldy Mountain
Is our limit! We can't go higher!
Tis better to just to face this world
And function within our limit
Accept the time within our grasp
And live the life that’s in it!
