The Price of Glory

Many believe the prize is a large stack of cash

It’s a piece, but greenbacks aren’t the whole picture.

Hand in the air, emotion strikes like a flash;

Another step toward a known household fixture.

There’s a heavy toll for a run to the top;

For most, an overcast journey makes them stop.

Many hurt and need help to not go astray;

A voracious need for success paves the way.
