You captured my attention from the first line to the last
so many left their mark to improve this great land Some time I wonder will I be leaving my mark also even if it's not that grand?
Thank you for sharing

I totally agree with you. There have been so many people throughout the years change this troubled world for the better.

We are in desperate need now of a few more like the ones you mentioned to help us get back on the right path. Great rhyming. Take care...Bill

We all yearn to have a place in the sun before we pass, but some really work hard to get theirs. And they do deserve the honor and respect for their amazing tenacity and efforts. Thank you for highlighting a few of these brave souls dared to go beyond their comfort zone.

I loved your sentiments here and this is a tribute to some great names in history, so enjoyed. The last line doesn't sit right to me? Maybe:

(They) earned their place in the sun

An earned place in the sun

(And) earned their pale in the sun

Just a few suggestions, but I am sure you will think of something better,

Love Dolly x

In whatever way we can. Wherever our talents lie. How much more meaningful when we set out to practice our gifts to positively touch our fellow man...even if we make one person smile, we've set a ripple in life's pond that goes on and on and on. Your writing has that affect on me.--Karenina

This is absolutely beautiful, encouraging, and inspirational. It's fuel in the tank for everyone who doubts that they can do anything. You inform the reader that whatever background you come from you can triumph and dare to be great. I enjoyed this and the awesome message conveyed in this well written offering. Great job and well done!

Good stirring poem. I applaud the message.

Nice rhyme and meter and good flow.

I noted some spag but these are easy fixes. Next time run your work through spell check or grammerly.

Line 2
innings, since it's a cricketing term

Second stanza last line

Third stanza
No apostrophes

Final stanza

and earned

Yes we all need to face our fears and dare to dream.
