Many an obstacle, all absolutely achievable
Quite possibly anyway, at least I do hope
I mean, I really don’t know what to say…
If I do, perhaps, truly have what it takes
Or if I am, in fact, another such also-ran
Seems only time can allow itself to tell
Spell the whole goddamn reckless thing out
Definitely a science to this thing
Treasure it all the more on my getting to open wide those literary doors? No doubt about it!!
Don’t ever get me wrong, this ain’t the pits by any stretch
But neither do I want it to remain this way
C’mon, just please tell me that I do deserve to have my day by the end
I never longed to be dead by the time my precious words finally took it upon themselves to speak
