To Achieve - Poem by Harry Conte

To set a goal, obtainable,
To chart one's course through life;
To truly know that you alone,
Can brave the storm and strife.

To know within your heart and soul,
That you can win the game;
To know that once you've made the mark,
You will never be the same.

What greater gift can on posses,
Than the right to make a choice;
To know that as you walk through life,
Someone will hear your voice.

To know that you among all men,
Have reached the goal you set;
It there's a greater gift from God,
I have not found it yet.
