If I climbed the highest mountain,
Swam across the widest sea,
Possibly would you then,
Begin to believe in me?

If I found the cure to cancer,
Or created a great invention,
Finally would you have faith,
In all my good intentions?

If I stopped the hungry from starving,
And gave strength to all the weak,
Maybe then would you listen,
To all the words I speak?

If you simply made a difference,
In one life or two,
I promise I would be proud,
Because I already believe in you...

I know the feeling, it's like "Give me a littlbe bit of credit will yah!". The last stanza was just the perfect way to end it

 "If you simply made a difference,
In one life or two,
I promise I would be proud,
Because I already believe in you... "

Really beautiful (bonus points for the rhyming!)
