The Perfection of Effort

Broad rivers flow, never slow, always moving.
Armour-like effort, joyful determination, like a child at play.
"This I can do, and will"
Persistence is key,
Like water eroding rock over time.
Be a lion - fierce and strong, the king of your mind's grassland.
Giving pause when needed, learning when to rest.
With the power of inspiration, aspiration
You can!
If you love what you do, you can do.
Distractions are jewel thieves!
Discouragement is a lie to yourself,
(So you don't have to move, improve -
  Progress and finish). Always finish.
Drip-by-drip the oceans fill,
Brick-by-brick the palace builds.
A spark -
Some fuel,
Some air;
Light fires inside yourself!
