when chips are down breathe easy
fix your gaze to aspire for success 
drawn back a few notches easily
a distraction of confusion and duress

the beast in us that plays the devil
which negates the positive show of efforts   
playful and non-committal are twin evils
in the light of days spent in comfort

success is a function of time and money
twin elements that spell happiness
an epitome of honour that begets glory
planned and implemented to harness
the fruits of labor so desirous to one’s heart
not equitable to attention but the best
tools of the trade and desire are poles apart
resolve stunted by pain of failure nonetheless

  1. Fix your gaze to aspire for success - try to focus on something obtainable. If only one could taste a morsel of the desires of the heart.

    Always, wishing you success Hank! I hope you are well?
