You Can Jump by sweatport82
When I close my eyes an d Catch a glimpse of the world beyond common perception, I see rivers and mountains and rain and sun; I see gray skies and blue skies and rainbows galore. I walk the world In my mind's eye; Follow the trails of crushed flowers, Follow the trails of fresh new sprouts. The mountains in front of me Tower as all as the sky, as ominous as a cliff. But there's always a way, whether Leaping, climbing, skirting, or slicing it apart. The rivers ahead are Broad and livid, water rushing, Ready to swallow anyone, anytime, but they can still be Crossed in a wooden boat, or vanquished by a golden bridge. The rain clouds are always there Following like ominous shadows of gloom, Ready to rain, ready to thunder-- But the sun is there, too, ready to frighten them away. I open my eyes and know, that there are and will always be Hurdles in life. I open my eyes and know, That the hurdles in life Can always be jumped.
