The Future We Would Like To Tell

Words for my friends in Ag who face the joy and challenges that come each spring.

Their dreams were not a promise

They had no guarantee

Blood, sweat, and tears added hope

Their hearts and souls admired by me

They took hold of the frontier

Stared down trouble and defeat

From their knees they conquered

Heads down, offering prayers so sweet

Now here we are, some 140 years later

Our challenges remain the same

Some ask, do you have what it takes? Can you win this game?

I stand on the shoulders of giants, I say

Not losing sight of the goals set

We will honor all those before us

A duty we’re called to, there is no reason to fret

For its in OUR blood too, and in our sweat and tears

Our legacy we’d like to leave, the future stretched out in years
