To Inspire the Young

To Inspire the Young

The young come bold in heart
En masse, in numbers that astonish
Competing for glory.
Glory, gloria, the thing that flies
On speeding wings
For none to keep
But to be briefly touched,
By the strongest
By the swiftest
And by the smartest.
You daring souls
Seek the best within yourselves
And in so doing
Become the best of a generation.
For you there is no failure
In victory, you claim your prize
And even in falling short
You rise far above the crowd.
So strive, strive with all your heart
And focus your mind
You are the inheritors of the stars.
