Poetry – The Need to Succeed

In times of stressful situations

Never does these seem to be

Ends to the opportunities to do

Everything grows in importance

Dauntingly the tasks loom

Ambivalence takes hold

Sometimes I know what should be done

Most often I cannot move

A dull throbbing in my head

Louder and louder it groans

Lamenting my failures inside its echos

Sensibly I should pick anything

Using a simple task to overcome

Crushing the overwhelmed feeling

Caressing the wounded mind

Energizing the self to do more

Small success brings greater success

Success brings satisfaction
