Poem -

Seeking More.

Will To Succeed.

Seeking More.

Focus, of your soul, is driven, to distraction.
Through loves promise, and blessed vision,
In heart and mind, is set the tone of the will.
To, triumph, despite such enormity, of an ill.

 Living, you search, for what becomes you.
Giving concern, to what can see it through.
Making progress, on a road, you do select,
For testing, of your worth, belief in correct !

You clearly define the greater good easily.
Taking time, to further the merit frequently.
Wishing to offer a legacy upon any stage !
Trying to improve a world right for the age.

Hi Richard...I like the positive message to overcome despite life's way of throwing distractions and ways to interrupt...when there is a will, there is a way to improve and make corrections that need to be made to have a life that is genuine.  It takes focus and determination of spirit for sure to define a life of value...but it starts from "seeking more" for the actions to follow that make ti more...Great theme.  Love n Hugs, xo Cherie

Correctional procedures are welcome on many occasions. As when, a " bitch " threatens to " bite, your hand-off " in a stand-off, over a Walnut Whip ! Why would that not be ? I, ask you. Or, when a " Casanova " bossing " the business " wants more than his usual share. Due, to trouble from " contractual obligations " inside an institution. Away, from the " working " week ! Beneficial divergence, never threatening to turn " sour, " but does !! You, get it ? Many, do not. Unfortunately, for them ?
Never mind, I don't, either. Really. But, LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT. That, is sure ?
Thus, I will have to try harder, next time, to find rhyme and reason, to it. Any variation considered. Analyzing, whatever, comes, from here. Or, there. Or, bizarre evidence of life's " variety. " You, know, more than most, I suppose, what can come, from anything ?

Some, just " Bitch Slap " anything, in situ, causing offence, to make it go away. Or, " cream " it ? Slang, benefiting the " gang " ?
For, the common good. You, have to turn, things, in your favour. Right ? TO GET THE MOST OUT OF IT. Surely ?
Life, being, like that ? Or, close to it ! ANY WAY ? You. like to see, it ?
BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. I, say. You, do not want to be hurt. Now, do you ?  :)   X

" YOU, HAVE TO GET, IT. RIGHT, FOR THEM. "  Does, that, not make sense ? Who does not want it, to be better ? 
Life, has to be dealt with. On, its own terms ?
LIVE, FOR IT. LOVE IT ! Who would disagree ?  :)
