How do I keep going far and long?
Hope has egged me on and on…
Success, at times eluded me…
Has failure ever flummoxed thee?
At work one sees declining jobs,
Even ‘made-in-heaven marriages’ flop,
Life ends not, it does go on,
Reflect awhile, then, plod along.
You once had many high-spirited dreams,
Pick one, as you would, a sharp light-beam;
Allow it to guide your path steadily,
Even if it seems the going is dreary.
While the fragrance of success may allure,
At the deepest roots is toil, and a tear for sure;
Beneath the fame are hidden failures,
If you’re in this game, then grin ‘n’ endure.
Your goal must be tangible,
Then the path is visible;
Now is the time,
Grab some lunch,
Pack a punch,
Be gone with your light-beam,
Make your journey memorable,
Filled in with plenty of fun!
