Reach, not surrender


You can reach your hands into the sky
Reaching, aspiring, hoping for the future
Smiling, breathing calmly extending your reach
Or you can extend your arms in surrender

You can walk a thousand miles with me
In an attempt to find a better future
Bathing, you can savour the sun in the sky
Or you can lay by the roadside and surrender
