Clean Slates

Upon this journey that we labor,
With sacrifices done.
Can we afford to stop and languish,
Satisfied some battles fought have been won?
Perceptions stuck in shallow conceptions...
Remain in a sustaining reality of rejections,
And this has not succeeded.

Upon this journey that we labor,
With sacrifices done.
Some have come to rejoice
A clearing provided by the Sun.

Others bring along reminders,
Of challenges that seem not to soothe.
They must be left,
With lives they accept.
The rest must keep on the move!
This can't be contemplated.

Upon this journey that we labor,
With sacrifices done.
Diversity of flavors tasted,
Can benefit the outlooks of everyone!

A clearing ahead is there to clean slates!
Hesitating to prepare,
Will stagnate and seal an aborted fate!
This energy depletes those who still reach.
Those who dare to climb valleys and touch peaks!
