With Time And Experience To Give

Many who have unselfishly donated,
Their time and experience...
To others with claims made mentioned and wished,
For those opportunities that open doors.
With an assistance from the ones who persist,
Through thick and thin,
They will be there to help them do this.
Discovered and often a waste of time has been spent,
On people without motivation or initiative that begins.

Some with dreams are not prepared to sacrifice.
They want their paths paved and freed of obstacles,
With their plans scheduled to guarantee success.
To then become exhausted,
If discipline and remaining focused to them is suggested.
And success is expected without a drop of sweat.
With those giving time and experience,
Found they have been accused by others for losing interest.

'What else would you like me to do?
Set the alarm clock for you too? '

~Do you mind?
But please don't use my name in an attempt to receive credit.
Since I don't want it revealed to be known,
I am the one who has condoned the accomodating of 'your' efforts.~

'I'm sorry.
I misunderstood your comments.
Repeat that.
I'm sure your words I've misinterpreted.'

~No problem.
You can go ahead and set my alarm clock.
But whatever else you do,
Please don't use my name in an attempt to receive credit.
Since I don't want it revealed to be known,
I am the one who has condoned the accomodating of 'your' efforts.~

'And you are serious? '

~Very much so.
I want it believed I have achieved on my own.~
