Endless Burdens
Author: Ashley


Failing can be continuous if you let it
take a deep breath bvut do not hesitate;
pause but do not stop; try again if you
will success is unfailing; by all means necessary
what matters sticks out without a complexity
the true self; within; holds value;
the opportunity burns and glows, but only
you can embrace that light. However, uncertainty
awaits you and consumes this vibrant light
raid the harshness of reality; its perfect
endless burdens of so called perfection
its perfect; perfect enough to make you
realize the moments you hold most, what
overwhelms you and the infinite possibilities
of life.

Obligations are scattered and they stick to you on the way;
a single way to shove you down slowly;
a hole to bury you in; alone; idle
the ideal purpose; to bring pain to
to bring you down and to make you devour
into something you desire oh so badly
or so greatly; stranded by the way;
right next to; so close you can almost
it; then taken away; so fast it becomes
an illusion; an illusion in which you now
believe; but should not accept.

but why? Because the person who were you
is not me; because I am you; the person
on the other side that no one sees; we
are whole; the part that failed and the
part that will succeed. UNWAVERING

Everything worth working for is worth
getting. believe; human being and life
is compatible; obligations stick to you
not desires and wants; anything to stop
you along the way; dead in your tracks;
while on the road; not to success; but
to the potential of success; its perfect
Endless burdens of so called perfection
should not back but step up; responsibility
means getting you priorities in order
so that endless burdens do not run over
you when you are making these steps
Everything is a lesson
don't be left a stray
gone with the wind into another day
a prey you are to endless burdens;
please don't let them have your way.
