    REALITY

    Don't dwell on what was
    Accept what is and think
    Of what could be.
    Limits are made by us and
    Therefore are not unchangeable.
    The heavens are limitless
    The sea knows no bounds.
    So it can be if YOU
    Make it your REALITY.

    A Little Bit More

    We recall the kind old grocer, when the sugar he would pour,
    How he tipped the scales to balance,
    And then he would add a little bit more.

    His business how it prospered, folks were always in his store,
    Because he gave an honest measure,
    Then he would add a little bit more.

    So it is with life my friends, we would write a better score,
    If after we've done all that's expected of us...
    If we would add a little bit more.
