Triumphant Moment
Courage is the coin that life demands
Of those who seek release from little things.
The fearful grope their way with unsure hands
And feeble faith for peace no bondage brings,
Haunted ever by imprisoned dreams
Chanting in their hearts to be set free.
But  he who dares to make a choice and teams
His zest for striving with audacity
Will gain the victory, forgetting scars,
And for one triumphant moment touch the stars.


Music composed by Malcolm, "Taps-Mine Eyes have Seen the Glory Rendition" in honor of Elaine and her poem,
"Triumphant Moment"
