"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

~Martin Luther King Jr.

If it is one that is convenient and can be accomplished effortlessly

Only the truly courageous man stands steadfast when things get tough

This is when many drop hands to their side and cry enough is enough

If the truly brave man believes in his endeavor he stands firmly

He does not waver from his plan but instead pushes on with devotion

He will not back away but works with unwavering and unending energy

For he has dared to dream and will not rest until his dream comes to be
