The only thing you can't achieve
is what you fear to try
it's tough to fail when you believe
that nothing can deny

your spirit when it sets a goal
or heart as it incites
your will to satisfy your soul
before the final rites.

I saw tomorrow
in a cripple's gait
and in my marrow
felt the weight
of aching sorrow
that won't abate
the line is narrow
twixt folly and fate
