People come in three categories
The ones that catalyst change,
The ones that murmur in disbelief
And the ones with indifference on their face.
It is easy enough to dream up a cloud
And wish upon a daisy,
To hope and pray and rely on God
And not really do anything praise-worthy.
There is a secret behind every success
And it usually is the same,
It’s a foolproof test, to filter the best,
Because hard work you cannot feign.
The one thing people don’t know about determination,
Is how hard it is to inculcate,
You can’t just wake up one morning
And determination cultivate.
It takes time to develop momentum
Focus doesn’t work on jump starts,
You need to invest,
Tears blood and sweat
And every little part of your heart…
It takes years of successive sacrifice
To get where you want to be,
When everyone is out, to stay behind
And work towards your dream becoming reality.
Look at it as though it were a battle,
You have to give it all you’ve got,
There’s no turning back or second chances
If you are victorious, it was a battle well fought.
There really is only rule to the game,
And it requires a dauntless front
You have to locate, lock and engage
To capture what you want.
Remember to remind yourself
Replay the game plan in your head,
Never lose sight and tirelessly fight
You can sleep when you’re dead.
