Jaimin L. Symonds Patel on how rewarding to reach for the sky can be

If you think, that you will halt,
It was your choice, to take it,
So take it, upon yourself,
The weight, you wished,

Come, come,
Tread, bare,
The path, you take,

If you think, that you will crack,
It is to you, that I gave,
The back, that will not break,
My breath, for your sake,

Go, go,
Tread, bare,
The path, you take,

If you think, that you will turn,
It does not suit, to snap and split,
Your sole, then bend back,
The road, and so your soul,

Go, go,
Run, full,
The path, you take,

If you think, that you will reach,
The peak, you asked for,
Right there, grasp, so you will own,
Or put on it, a foot,
And so have, much more,
Of a hand, of mine own,

Go, go,
Run, full,
The sky, I give.
