REACH HIGH!

Reach high! The finest  things of life
Are on the topmost shelves.
We have to stand on the tiptoe__
Stretch our small, self-centred selves;
We have to look above our heads
To where the heart can see,
If we would reach that finer life
We’d like our life to be.

We have to mount our old mistakes
And try and try again
If we would even touch
Life’s highest moments now and then__
If we would even brush with lightest
Fingertips the best
That life on earth can offer__
If we would reach the crest.

Reach high! The best is always kept
Upon life’s topmost shelves,
But not beyond our reach if we
Will reach beyond our selves.

(Moments of Awareness – H.L. Lowrie)
