Relative Greatness

What is inside me 

That makes me want to be great 

This I will relate 


Of most importance 

I look to upcoming years 

Push aside my fears 


I want to be great 

Although greatness might not be 

Same for you and me 


Great to me is not 

Cars and women and money 

That's not what I see 


I see family 

A loving wife and children 

Create precious kin 


Income to have life 

Not excess; enough for joy 

Dreams of a young boy 


Friends that keep me clean 

All I do and all I say 

Do good ev’ryday 


This is what inspires 

The dream of future greatness 

Never be faithless
