The Ideal

(with apologies to James Fenton)

For this I stand tall

I argued the case

For this, I am proud

I rose above the base

 

The story of self

I passed this way

Whittled away the years assigned

Life lived day by day

 

This is my was, am, will be

Which I will not discard

This is my ideal

Every day is hard
