ambition, my motivation, my goal
my purpose in life, my sole
reason for surviving this internal struggle
This down and out state and multiple
thoughts I juggle

What keeps me going is what keeps me breathing
everyday is a supposed clean slate
and every minute of every hour,I'm
dreaming of what could be
what should be, what will be

These visions are huge and my
potential even overwhelms me
and then the fear comes in and
hesitation plays a visit or two or
three and then I'm left to
be -- and feel what needs to be

So I'm quick to attempt to
tackle everything at once only to
meet frustration, pressure, self-loathing
at the tiniest failure
needing reassurance and encouragement
from somewhere, anywhere to get me there
to that place of
That drive, ambition, my motivation,
my goal, my purpose in life, my soul.
