"Set your goals high, and when you accomplish them, set more."

We wish to be the world,
To know every soul and
Encounter every life.
When the dark storm appears,
We always do come back
After every stumble,
After every fall. We
Keep on turning. We are
Always turning. Oh so
Slightly, yet ever so
Quick. It’s never enough
To try and know the ways
That we work. We work in
Such strange ways that we will
Never understand it.

Why does the wind blow on
Why the wind does blow on
We wish to learn but can’t
Find the end of the books.
Oh the neverending,
Condescending, never
Friendly books. That look. And
Try to explain it all.
We wish to be the world,
But cannot. For that is
Long gone and has been far.
We can only try to
Be him or
Her or
You or
And as much as it hurts,
We will always be we.
