A Meeting In A Part

Poem By Wendell Berry

With just a bit of rest,
And out of breath to catch it...
I'm on a mission I confess,
Has been with me it seems...

With just a little bit of needful sleep,
Keep awake as I sip on tea.
I'm on a quest with a message.

If I feel a need to get something done...
Nobody but myself will do it.
Any doubts I had I grew to overcome.
No matter what I did to get to be someone.

When a mind fixed sticks with a wish for success...
Eating little and getting rest,
Not a choice but a fact accepted.
When a mind fixed sticks with a wish for success,
The main objective.
