Why try?

The horizon seemingly infinite, destinations beyond our grasp, nothingness definite, why try we ask?

Dreams crumble, darkness creeping, hopes tumble, happiness in weeping, some days too difficult a task, why try we ask?

Try, try we must, our souls are ever in this desperate lust, as the winds about us gust, we therefore do what we must.

Yes, life is grieving about days gone by, yet life also promises to fly, this is why, we must try, never let hope die.

No destination unreachable, pull up a seat at hope's table, we all are able to weave our own fantastical fable, this is why, we try.

Take a chance and finally dance, welcome life as your partner and suddenly dreams become larger, all we need to do is try, try, try.
