I live in the world,
That has turned and turned.
I care for the people,
That have died and burned.

I try to be more,
And if I succeed,
I am more displeased than ever,
I want to soar.

I want to get,
To get what I want.
And when I get want I want,
I want even more.

Life cannot be blamed,
For our trials and triumphs.
For we live our lives
Quiet, or untamed.

So remember to set your goals high,
But do set them so high,
That they surpass the sky.

Because if you set your goals,
If you set them too high.
You never will reach them,
Before you die.

Jone~
Realistic goals should be attainable.
That's how we triumph ... by reaching them.

Good read.  Thought-provoking for sure.

***Jone,
It is far healthier to set oneself reachable goals and to expand upon these, than to fail whilst trying to reach the unreachable.
A fantastic poem.
