It’s a long march up the hill, but…

In this world there’s a whole lot of trouble,baby.
In this world there’s a whole lot of pain.
In this world there’s a whole lot of trouble,
But a whole lot of ground to gain.
Why take when you could be giving?
Why watch as the world goes by?
It’s a hard enough life to be living,
Why walk when you can fly?

And in this world there’s a whole lot of golden;
In this world there’s a whole lot of plain.
In this world you’ve a soul for a compass
And a heart for a pair of wings.
There’s a star on the far horizon,
Shining bright in an azure sky;
For the rest of the time that you’re given
Why walk when you can fly?

 — Why Walk When You Can Fly? , Mary Chapin Carpenter
