Thoughts on the video High Hopes.

High apple pie in the sky hopes.
It’s been said before,
the anthem of the eternal optimist,
you can make it if you try,
if you’re free
and others are too.
Choose your goal and start climbing
(millions do and a few succeed),
stand alone on the highest peak
but don’t look up
(the sky is not for you
and Babel just a hope long abandoned).
Your dreams are always limited
by the units of your measure,
the horizon of the possible.
We live in a finite world
and freedom is only true
in the extent we grant to others.
Success has many faces
and mostly has its feet
planted full square upon the ground.
