Promises made, promises broken

Hollow words echo past

Failure haunts a future spoken

Time to eye higher caste


Act not chat potential talent

Centre soul, focus mind

Forget that I am malcontent

Write outlook I will find


Lay to rest mind adversary

Impede thoughts that restrict

No more thinking cursory

Believe in truth to inflict


Ground unexplored offers chance

Old pastime drifts in wake

Command the moment to advance

Present the gift I make

Fresh commitment, solid base

A new road to walk along

Success and happiness to taste

And destined dawns to ponder on
