The path from rock bottom to the pinnacle,
Expect things to go sideways and fall off course.
Lengthy bird walks will turn one cynical,
Resolve issues with focus, the only source.
There may not be equity traveling up;
Don’t numb pain with drugs or get lost in a cup.
Find humor in the problems like a dark meme;
When decided on goals, dreams don’t lose their steam.
