    THE MEASURE OF A MAN SUNG BY ELTON JOHN





    YouTube - ELTON JOHN - THE MEASURE OF A MAN (ROCKY V)



    WHEN THE TRUMPETS BLOW STRONG

    I hear
    The echoes of a call
    That once was loud
    Now seems gone
    Calling back
    To be
    Remembered.

    Dare
    I wake them up at all
    Or should I keep them
    Where they are
    In
    The Triumphs of the past
    Where they're held
    In Fond Remembrance?

    Dare
    I beckon to the call
    Of The Trumpets
    Blowing strongly
    Calling back
    For me to answer
    Or can
    I Reach where I was
    Then
    On top of it all?

    Or will
    I Fail and Lose it all
    With
    The Triumphs of before
    Or be Remembered
    For my Feats
    Because
    I Could not
    Face Defeat?

    What purpose
    Do I serve?

    In this Quest
    For going on
    To Come back
    Once more
    To Hear
    The Trumpets
    Blowing?

    Will I
    Serve it or myself?

    For Do
    I have
    The Strength
    I need
    To overcome
    All I must
    Knowing
    I Could Fail?

    Most of all
    To myself

    Do
    I have
    The will in me
    if
    I answer
    Yes,
    Is it all
    I need?

    For what is it
    That I want
    To Prove myself
    To Whom or What?

    Written for And Dedicated to

    The Greatness of Oneself
    Is to Triumph over Evil
    For Goodness is the Fight
    You must Win
    The Rounds are not Ten
    It is Minutes to the End.


    A Poet’ Note

    THE CROWN
    Oh how I would love
    To recover the crown
    It’s hard to regain
    When
    life is wearing it now.
    From A Play of Words
