Song of Success

Song of Success


Do not get halfway and stop.
Move on, till you reach the top.
All those who have reached the top can tell
That if you push on, you too can excel.

You may stumble now and then, or err,
But, friend, do not despair;
Though the climb to success can be rough,
The strength in you is more than just enough!

The joy is richer past the trouble spot;
And there’s an inner guide to help your lot:
The ever still and small, unerring voice
Will ever help you make a worthy choice.

Do not buckle at that great challenge;
It will raise your wisdom and your range;
And if your goal is truly high and noble,
Then you must learn to overcome the trouble.
