A world without passion is one filled with gloom.
Forced into an office and told when to break;
The gall of the thought, an unspeakable doom.
Prizefighters choose a clear future to forsake.
While in the thick of it, who knows where things go?
The mind leaps toward the limelight, but life moves slow.
Attaining the goal can taste sweet as candy,
Never quitting is a skill set that’s handy.
