Maximizing Strides

Take giant leaps,
With it done whenever you can.
And...
Continue to make those strides,
To do without thoughts to minimize.

These days and times lived are changing quick!
Anyone sitting permitting themselves to resist,
May claim to have faith.
But...
Where is it?
Or the trust in it you say exists?

These days and times lived are changing quick!
Anyone sitting permitting themselves to resist,
May claim to have faith.
But...
Claims to make don't chase doubts away.
And your doubts have been given too much space to stay.

Take giant leaps ahead,
To put fears to bed with a fixed determination.
And eyes on maximizing strides to pride.
Why keep that hidden with a doing to brush aside?

These days and times lived are changing quick!
As Doubting Thomases make their attempts to rip...
Joy and happiness away from those promoting it.
Misery to feed and gloom to feast,
Seems on the rise as negativity increases...
With no signs of it ceasing to diminish and end.
And those who have chosen to remain in their seats...
Are the very same people awaiting defeat.

But...
To live a life accepting excuses to make with fresh alibis,
Only minimizes to dim one's pride leaving them inside...
With a loss of energy to realize those maximizing strides,
To take...
And not await,
Defeat.
