out past the blue

to reach the realm that lies beyond the sun
takes so much effort that most folk will fold
their angry hands and let their eyes grow cold
tell you their patience long ago was done
you have to finish before you've begun
and understand the lies you have been told
it is too hard these days to be true bold
and reach out past the stars just for the fun
what good is given we shall have to take
not with a smile but with a steady look
just so each knows the proper word to say
the world we leave is easy to forsake
and much is written in the golden book
but that is matter for a calmer day
