finish line sprint

one hour was all it took
to figure out the steps
that must be taken to be
happy in a hundred days
and it becomes a very specific method to aim for when
the present situation is becoming far too much
to handle and when each new occasion
reminds of where the final goal has often rested besides
yet being aware of the end result when each next
step is attained and try not to do anything halfway
but if you work hard enough and get there
then every day will be like your birthday
and then if you keep that in mind it makes ambition easier
to find and if you let yourself get distracted
just come back to it
