Your Greatest Achievement

Your greatest achievement in life may seem small
And to many is not an achievement at all
But you have hung in there when the going was tough
And you have been hungry and you have slept rough
And the challenges life brought to you with bravery you did meet
You are no longer homeless on Poverty Street
And you are no longer one of the poor of the town
As is said of brave men they cannot be kept down
What resilience can do you are one who has shown
With your lovely wife and young daughter you live in a home of your own
You may never become a known multi millionaire
But people like you are to say the least rare
From Poverty Street you have come a long way
Fortune favors the brave as the wise one does say.
