Sacrifice For A Goal - Poem by Teddy Gawuga

Sacrifice when you've got a goal
Though it can bleed the heart
In the long run with a lonely stroll
Your results would be greater than the start

Carve out time
Rise up with a steady climb
And the warm breeze of your efforts
Will whisper through the chimes

Always concentrate on the end of the road
Is achieving a goal worth the sacrifice?
For there's a crowd at the crossroad
Waiting to perceive the smell of a fish slice

Your goals maybe are afar
Quicken yours thoughts like sliding a bobsleigh
With tireless endeavors
Your goal is worth your sacrifice.
