If one desires, and then aspires, so comes the motivational fires. If one does not then there maybe no jackpot. Then again, the jackpot maybe in the eyes of the beholder.

You reach for the sky,
or you sat and wonder why,
why you don't,
why you won't,
or why you can't,
then maybe you pant.


Wanting to be,
striving to be,
being to be,
sacrificing to be.


To be,
or not to be,
To be what?
To be what you want to be,
must be clear as the eyes can see.
It must be a goal,
and maybe it will unfold.


Overcoming laziness,
conquering craziness,
just fighting to exist,
by adding your own twist,
might be all one can fantom,
but to others it might be small as the atom.


But to you it's the bomb,
because you didn't succumb,
to negativity,
but are strong in positivity.


Having,
and not having,
maybe as simple as behaving,
or not behaving.
Conforming,
and not conforming.
Working hard,
or not working hard.
It's up to the individual to call his own card.


Measure,
his own treasure,
and to figure out his own pleasure.
