The Impossible Dream


To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow,
To run where the brave dare not go,

To right the unrightable wrong,
To be better far than you are,
To try when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star,

This is my quest
To follow that star,
No matter how hopeless,
No matter how far

To be willing to give,
when there’s no more to give.
To be willing to die so that
honour and justice may live

And I know
If I only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’ve lain to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strolls with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
