Sonnet : Resolve
"When in the course of human events", do we stray
Or remain in a direction that speaks to our resolve ?
Is making a mark in life, resolve? What is the way?
Ancestry commands that all its strengths must evolve :
Then, from the fringes into the middle, a line's struck
Marking the optimum course to achieve desired goal.
Familiarity captains ship, reads charts, exudes luck,
All the while the groove is ground etching the soul :
And then, the die being cast, you put your shoulder
To the task ahead committing yourself into action,
Finally realizing, an unexamined life's not only bolder,
But one swinging widely poised to gain more traction.
Life marked to succeed, by person's true grit, gathers
Many followers. Desire to win, with a winner, matters.
