Have a great month!

“Unattainable” ‏

It’s that thing that you think you need to have,
You reach for keeps, but it exceeds your grasp.
Success…you want her so bad her scent makes you dance,
But people only give you one percent of a chance.

Get acquainted with toughness when things don’t go right.
Every star had to spar so they’d know the fight.
Doubts…everybody wants to kick it to you, because you’re a fair catch.
Why do we cut ‘em down or “What!?” ‘em when they are doing their best?

Having strong will is crucial,
After long hills it’s fruitful.
Sometimes you push, and then you pull,
Before old age is youthful.

To get near wisdom,
Takes clear vision,
Succeed Indeed I must agree is this years mission.

Love mends and transcends like Heavens breeze,
But you’ve gotta be as current as the Seven Seas.
There are things that can’t be taught, but tons are trainable,
Take it from the philosopher of the impossible…nothing’s unattainable.
