Sunshine Mountains



When you climb "sunshine mountains,"
when you take the grandest view,
when you gain broad perspective,
many good feelings accrue...this reality construe.
When you sail on a calm ocean,
when you float on a soft cloud,
when you drive a peaceful highway,
tranquillity is endowed...this reality enshroud.
When you think of injustice,
when you review a past hurt,
when you seek to get even,
energy will controvert...this reality divert.
When you count all your blessings,
when you're thankful for the grace,
when you display gratitude,
splendiferous is the trace...this reality embrace.
When events that you dwell on,
when everything that you see,
when the places of focus,
transmute as your adoptee...this reality decree.
