Harvesting Their Planted Fears


Ambitious ones on a mission,
Seldom get free passes...
From those wishing to block their paths.

Obstacles are possible,
And often unexposed...
By those who have their minds conditioned,
To oppose any progress sewn.

Fenced in by limitations,
And doubters with trepidations...
Harvesting their planted fears.

Obstacles are possible,
And often unexposed...
By those who have their minds conditioned,
To oppose any progress sewn.

Ambitious ones on a mission,
Seldom get free passes...
From those wishing to block their paths,
With a backlash.

Fenced in by limitations,
And doubters with trepidations...
Harvesting their planted fears,
In fields everywhere that appear.
And with backlash...
To stop ambitious ones on a mission,
With a blocking their paths.
