Line Defined

The definition of finish
Can’t possibly be the first sign of progress on the road to success
Maybe it’s the ok to exit
Or a predetermined establishment of “well enough”
Its designed as something easy to live with
Finish is an artificial crown made by self satisfying experience
In which the state of regality is in question
A finish
Is the line between complacency and mastery
Once you seek after it, you subconsciously predetermine it
It is sometimes a tool of teaching
It is the mountain top for climbers
The tape for sprinters
It’s a deadline
Sometimes it’s the point of not trying anymore
Is it the end of suffering?
Or the sign of a job complete?
Whatever it is, a finish
Is not the point that your limits define you
It’s where you define your limits
