Reaching Higher

Where are we going?
Either we’re advancing towards an ideal we can’t quite catch
or we’re surrendering to the status quo
—and stagnation.
Stop reaching and that which we strive for becomes forever out of reach.

Let us keep reaching,
striving,
and stretching,
for though the prize may remain beyond our fingertips
we become taller with the effort.
