Seeking Our Resolve
"When in the course of human events", do we stray
Or remain in a direction that speaks to our resolve ?
Making a mark in life, our resolve. What is the way?
Ancestry commands all of its strengths must evolve :
Then, from the fringes into the middle, a line 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 is not one 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.
