In response to Belles challenge...

Look ahead and forge your plan
delete bad thoughts from fellow man
make your list and point your aim
choose your own roads not the same

Don't give your goals an inch of doubt
you can't just whisper so please do shout
tell the world your map of life
then push aside all crap and strife

Push all distractions off your plate
set new terms to concentrate
a life long dream that has no plan
is a trip not taken, a waste of man.
