You’re trudging through the slop,
Deeper, thicker,
Sideways,
Backwards,
Any way you can,
Just one step,
One little step,
The first is hardest,
Take it,
Chase the dream, your goal,
Do it with a ferocious hunger,
Remember yesterday,
What it was,
Think of tomorrow,
What it will be,
But first,
Get through that shit,
That slough,
The sludge like river before you,
Don’t let your shadow lead the way,
This is your path,
Own it,
Brighter moments follow,
Look to the horizon,
Storms can’t last forever.
