Hardships and worthiness for all - a poem.
|A constant juggling of straight-laced clues;
Opportunities that seem nonsensical
Or don’t truly require talent or truth;
A dignity befitting a frog, not royalty -
A bunch of wise people
Explaining with insight
How positive and lucky to feel.
Awareness is the sword
By which we resolve
This massive shift of overdue traits.
Rail at talks of promise and scope...
Tackle the trees of life
With excitement and attraction -
Excitement as a tackler of deeds -
For human beings and apologetically
Sworn principles shall hold you accountable.
Because enthusiasm may seem
And certainty can embarrass us all...
But the volume for people
Shall merge into a professional
And social identity
And repair romantic concerns.
