Knowing when to back down and reset - a poem.
|Engineer the finest math -
Don’t be fooled, or take a bath.
Vicious odds might multiply;
Do you in, not be sky high...
The purpose once was automatic,
Now its logic is quite static.
What’s to gain by acting pure?
Will there be some kind of cure?
Know your limits, and bounce back;
Apply yourself, no heart attack.
Aiming high is just one way -
Follow through some other day.
Live to worship every cause;
Seeking grants that huge applause!
But sometimes knowing is a gift,
And changing ways gives such a lift!
