It’s understanding planning one step
and mastering the running
it’s refining what you’re writing til the rhapsody is stunning.
It’s practicing a skill til your hands worn withered
then it’s keeping your health┬ábalanced and your inner-self centered.
It’s to go against gravity and demand your elevation
it’s the time that duty called and didn’t have a reservation.
It’s the morning after midnight, the time you missed your calling
it’s the crying, it’s the balling, it’s digesting what’s appalling.

It’s faith love and empathy surviving through the misery
it’s smiling whether or not you’ve had the services of dentistry.
It’s sweating til you’ve rid yourself of any ounce of water

It’s the pen and how it always knows exactly what you’re thinking
it’s the nausea on your conscious when you see that you were sleeping.
It’s the million ways to die and only one that’s going to come to us
it’s listening to nature even when the sound is thunderous.

It’s┬álife and how you shape it in the time that you were given
it’s arriving at the finish line and knowing you were driven.
