My Personal Goal - Poem by James Grengs

I do not seek for wealth or fame,
Nor to be by men admired;
I simply wish to have my name
Be known, when at last my flesh is tired.

I am not great in deed or word,
Nor in imagination;
If by my end my voice be heard,
That were my life's summation.

My meter is poor, my rhymes are too,
But only allow me to speak to you.
