Consistently Persistent

If one is not...
Consistently persistent,
With it wanted to correct...
The presence of flaws,
Faced to accept.
What purpose does it serve,
To have high expectations?
And regret receiving,
Repeated disappointment.
Few cakes are baked,
Without taking them...
To an awaiting heated oven.
Knowing each step of a process,
Helps to validate...
An anticipated success.

Few missions to vision,
Should be kept on a backburner.
Hoping motivation,
Will provide incentive...
To release the heat to feel it.
If commitment isn't there,
But fumes of procrastination...
Continues to be allowed,
As a marriage vow.
One should be prepared,
To end this affair...
If passion is not there,
To connect and sacrifice...
Time, patience and love.
In the mix to witness,
The results achieved.
