If everyone could reach the stars

What purpose would be there

For the earth if everyone

Was soaring through the air?

Why is the sky so wonderful

And desirable to us?

What's wrong with the ground?

It's safe and sound,

And something we can trust.

We can live without the stars.

What we need is already ours;

Nothing ever bars our love.

Let them stay where they are.

There's a reason they far.

We can live without the stars above.

We often take the ground for granted

Because, to us, it's always handed.

Could we ever reach the stars

With no earth from which to leap?

It lets us embrace

The dreams we chase,

And not just touch but keep.
