Expect Greatness

The power of expectancy,
Requires you do your best;
Preparing to enjoy the fruits,
Of labor filled with zest.
Greatness is the measure,
It’s the standard of the skill;
It’s the thing most often treasured,
And it stirs the human will.
When your thought is linked with purpose,
And your vision crystal clear;
The doubts you have will vanish,
And you’ll overcome your fear.
The energy expended,
As you move from day to day;
Requires consistent action,
As you journey on your way.
Greatness is true brilliance,
It may force you to the deck;
It’s the sun without the shadow,
It’s the thing you must expect.
