I HAVE ONCE TRIED

I have once tried to fly12

but I could not get high enough

I have once tried to reach

but I could not stand the run

 

I have once tried to embrace

but my arms weren’t large enough

I have once tried to breathe

but much harder was the punch

 

The greatest problem there is

is to be limited in our nature

but so free in our minds
