Reach for the stars


I Watch the evening news,
Murder and stock market blues.
Congressmen making broken promises,
Constitutional changing,
Banks, homes in foreclosure,
And a second recession.

I waken everyday with a smile,
People always ask the question why?

It's a simple as apple pie,
I'm so high,
I reach for the stars in sky
I radiate happiness like wi-fi

I don't live every moment to deny
So happy, I just sigh,
So happy to to be able to say,
I'm free to struggle or succeed on this day.

My pockets have no bills,
I cant afford a new car or the house on the hill.
I listen to the song, I get by,
While I drive down the highway
And I reach for the stars in sky.

I'm so happy just to be alive
Riding the bubble, Just trying to survive.
Trying to just make a little good,
From a whole lot of depressing mood.

So reach for the stars in the sky
Reach with me for the stars in the sky.
Listen to the song, I get by
Don't ask the question why.
We can't fix the social lie.

Just Smile, my friend
how far can you extend?
Sing with me, I get by
Reach for the stars in the sky.

    Happiness recides in the mind, no matter the condition of the outside. There are many with tremendous wealth or power who are never happy or satisfied, while others with very little spend their days in total bliss.

    Yes, it is possible to have little or next to notthing and still enjoy happiness.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
