Short; I’ve learned that life is too short,
What are the necessities of such a sport?
Live, live, little by little, enjoy it all,
Your childhood, youth, adulthood, cycled circle
Of flaws that turn into strengths
That raise you up to a pinnacle of breaths
That feel uniquely important for you not to fall.
The abyss below can be a starkly black ball,
Or a bright sunny day filled with fun and play.
Enjoy the rainbows that come after a rainy day.
Those days are infrequent, transient,
And easily missed if you’re mired in your own dejected
Despair, whose darkness can’t be pierced
By the frivolity, fun, smiles, laughter of living and dead.
Don’t, don’t let that despair put you down,
Scare it away with your strength of will!!!!

I follow an inchoate process
That takes time and intellect to press
Into a favorable plan of action to achieve a pass.
The formless idea is hammered out into steps
That are manageable and achievable. It helps
That you don’t overstep or reach failures.
The impeeding obstacles to your goal
Are miniscule when achievable,
And overwhelming if not divisible.
Plan, organize, schedule, disciplines,
Are all part and parcel of your methods
To solve problems.
However, the most important piece
Is the creativity of the solution in the abundance
Of ways to achieve your goals.
Be assertive and pierce
The bullseye with your brilliance.
