The Main Objective - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

With just a bit of rest,
And out of breath to catch it...
I'm on a mission I confess,
Has been with me it seems...
Forever.

With just a little bit of needful sleep,
I...
Keep awake as I sip on tea.
Because...
I'm on a quest with a message.

If I feel a need to get something done...
Nobody but myself will do it.
And...
Any doubts I had I grew to overcome.
No matter what I did to get to be someone.

When a mind fixed sticks with a wish for success...
Eating little and getting rest,
Is...
Not a choice but a fact accepted.
And...
When a mind fixed sticks with a wish for success,
That.
Becomes.
The main objective.
