Keep everything in perspective


I’ll be able to reach the top
With sheer perseverance and hope
Perhaps one day, just keep going

I’ll be patient, see what it brings
Hard work, I’ll be happy to cope
Whatever I do, just don’t flop

I plant seeds then harvest the crop
Failing sometimes but never mope
Keeping an eye on that building

And every day just keep breathing
Balance myself on a tightrope
With practice I hope not to drop

Keep everything in perspective
That’s how I keep myself active*
