Double Time

Work harder
Work longer
Sleep not required
Go the distance
Pull yourself up
The world awaits
Grab it if you can
Limits are figments
True determination boundless
Bleed and sweat
Pay your dues
Succeed with effort
Prove it to yourself

It’s two poem Wednesday because I didn’t have time to post yesterday. Enjoy.

No Way Back

I must be ready to fight as there can be no retreat.

I will fire every bridge I pass, always moving onwards.

My gaze fixed on the horizon, not on the trap of the past.

Relentlessly forward into the unknown, consequences be dammed

Lost and adrift I will scuttle my boat and swim ashore.

The journey is never ended, the fight yet to be won.
