Treasure Island

Lylo Benant


Reach for the Sky


You can be anything, but you must try,
So never give up, REACH for the sky.
You can be a sailor or a pirate at sea,
And catch all the fish and set them free.
You can be an astronaut and shoot into space,
Or a pilot and take people from place to place.
You can be a cleaner making everything shine,
Or work on a vineyard and make lots of wine.

See, you can be anything, but you must try,
So never give up, REACH for the sky.
You can be a doctor and look after the sick,
Or a builder building houses, brick after brick.
You can be a dentist and fix a cracked tooth,
Or look after horses, mending sore hooves.
You can be a singer singing songs to a crowd,
Have everyone screaming your name aloud.

See, you can be anything, but you must try,
So never give up, REACH for the sky.
You can be an actor and dress up all day,
Pretend to be different, whoever you may.
You can be a hairdresser and cut people's hair,
Cut all sorts of shapes, whatever you dare!
You can be a plasterer and smooth wonky walls,
On ceilings, in bedrooms, in toilets and halls.

See you can be anything, but you must try,
So never give up, REACH for the sky.
You can be a fireman, and save someone's life,
Putting great big fires out, morning till night
You could be a policeman patrolling the roads,
Keeping the world safe from the bad boys and girls,
You could be a scientist making potions and pills,
Finding new medicines that help mend the ill.

See it really doesn't matter whatever you choose,
As long as you're happy you never will lose,
But don't look at me to decide what you do,
The only one making that choice will be…
YOU!

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
