Open your eyes

Part not ever
from your dreams
for it's not as far
as it seems

Think not ever
that it's too far away
for at this very moment 
it's floating your way

Just open your eyes
it can be true
the time is here
but it's up to you

For many have dreamt
but were always asleep
they could not see
what was there to reap.

    Wonderfull advice. Too many look but never see or search the world never knowing that the answers were in our own back yard. God Bless. Vince
