A task like no other,
With no one to watch but me,
No one will see if for a moment,
I stop in front of this wall,
In hopes that while I stall,
Something will come along,
Something mightier than I,
That brings down this insurmountable wall!
Alas, I am alone. There is no one I can call.
Therefore it is up to me!
I must rise from the dirt and find my way,
Past this obstacle, and into the garden,
For there I am sure to find, the rumored hen.
The eggs she lay, more precious than gold!
Each with a small fortune on their own!
Ah Ha, I cry, I will burrow below,
Then like a Phoenix, I rise from the Earth!
As I enter the garden it is larger than I thought,
Every section defended by a new obstacle,
I shall continue on, I want my yacht!
For it, that hen shall be caught!
Each obstacle seems to falls faster,
Perhaps I am learning,
That so long as I continue yearning,
For that marvelous prize;
my mind will continue churning.
Allowing me to solve any situation before me,
With ease and without worry.
What’s my secret?
No, I’m not meditating with a new stance.
The answer is sheer Perseverance!
