Stay Focused

Poetry By: Trainman238

Tags: Goals, Life, Love, Hate

This is a poem for all who need a little reminder as to why you need to stay focused on your goal(s) and why you need to make your own decisions... and most of all, the fact that no matter what you do, or who you hang out with, or what people think of you, YOU NEED TO REMEMBER WHAT YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS AND NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF IT...

So long, so short.

So slow, so fast.

Boring. Exciting. Fascinating.

Sad. Happy. Pathetic. Amazing.

Emotional. Mental. Physical.

Spiritual (for those of you who are)

High. Low.

Like a rollercoaster.

Roush. Smooth.

Like a road.


Friends. Enemies. Acquaintances.

Coworkers. Classmates. Teammates.

Relatives. Family. Young. Old.


Beautiful. Amazing. Interesting.

Make sure you never stray.

Never Falter.

Don't trip.

Don't slip.

Don't fall.

If you do, get back up.

Keep going.

Sacrifice sucks.

We never want to do it

but there are times when we have to.

Times when we have no other choice

but to make one. Or many.

How many have I made?

I've lost count.


Costly. Sometimes largely, sometimes little.

Learn from them.

Don't make the same ones again.


So good. So bad.

Beautiful. Ugly.

Enlightening. Blinding.

Don't let love blind you,

or cause you to stray.

Love can so easily cause you to

lose sight of your goals.

Your hopes and dreams.

If you find it, cherish it.

But NEVER let it blind you.


Helpful. Great.

Sometimes backstabbers.

Hopefully not.

Don't let your friends blind you

from your goals.


Lovely. Beautiful.

Don't let them get you down.


Only hate you because they are

secretly jealous of something

about you.

Ignore them.

All they want to do is bring you down.

Never lose sight of your goals,

and never stray from the path which will lead you to them.

Because to do so

is to throw away your life

and the very thing that makes you
