THE CHASM, by            
First Line: There are ahead of every man
Last Line: Of glory, wealth, and fame.
Subject(s): Sacrifices


There are ahead of every man
Glittering, great prizes,
With chasms, though, that he must span,
Of different shapes and sizes.

Before each goal a chasm lies;
The chasm is the cost
That man must pay to win the prize.
A goal is better lost

Than gained, if gained at sacrifice
Of honor and good name.
Scan well the chasm, note the price
Of glory, wealth, and fame.
