Those Nobler Goals
 




Where flew those noble goals and aspirations?
Are they beyond my reach now I have aged?
The purposeful, the clever machinations,
clear in my youth, while round me, ideals raged.
And what became of mercy and compassion,
rejoicing purely for the sake of joy,
eyes on the prize, the tenderest of fashion?
That hope which ripened well did I employ.
Used up my chances, did I, on pretense?
To what aim was I concentrating then?
focus well refined...far too intense.
On values leading to the last amen.
Higher though, than any grand ambition,
goals which lead us to the great Physician.



This quote comes from
'Where, When and How'
by Peter Crepeau, (Always My Words)


You inspire me, Mate.
