Aim High

Are you going all the way?
Can you make it one day?
Have you decided upon your destination?
Do you really want to go there?
Have you considered the fare?
Would you keep the course with no alteration?
Aim High! Be Steady!

When you travel up and down,
and true peace you haven't found
Perhaps your estimation of your potential is to low,
don't be too proud to lend a hand
your sense of achievement will expand
and you'll gain the necesssary moment as you go.
Aim High! Be Confident!

By helping others you will gain
So doing cease to complain.
As you lose yourself for the enrichment for others:
you'll find your aim so much better
you're living by the spirit of the law not the letter of the law
one for all and all for one,
Simply all Sisters and Brothers
Aim High! Somone depends upon your success.

Keep your chin up and eyes straight ahead.
Do not alter your course, be wary don't be misled
Be courageous, be consistent, be prompt give all that you can-
aim with accuracy, aim with care,
the care I speak of, the care, to share,
don't aim too high to see an outstreched hand.
Aim with love! Aim High! There's the challenge.

Give it your best don't count the cost
less than your best and the high battle is lost,
if you're given your very best you won't be blamed,
The Great Scorer, sees effort and desire
the love of others their good to acquire,
and he rates us upon the height and
the way we've aimed.
Aim High! Come Along!

Don't be discouraged life can be a lark,
We've aimed with love we've hit our mark
Don't aim with weapons aim with heart and soul
And if we aimed for the welfare of others
We've hit our goal.
Aim High! Praise God!

I just wanted to let you know that this really touched my heart this morning. God has so much for all of us and not just things on the earth. He wants our attention to help others to do their best to love him, honor and respect him. Thanks for writing such a beautiful poem. Keep on writing!
