The Double Edged Future

The optimist stretches his eyes and sees the invisible future
And says, "It is bright, promising and so beautiful a future!"
His heart is eagerly looking forward to its approach
That it may speedily reach the present moment and find him
The future, in its treasure box, holds delicious opportunities

The Talent in You

You got this talent, this art, this skill    
That naturally comes to your constitution
It lies in your deep trenches sleeping
On the substitute bench it is forever confined
Never to be played in the real world
Never to grace the pitch of serious business
It lies in the cold, destitute and unused
As useful as it is, yet soundly overlooked

Passion

Passion breathes life, such a stubborn life
That refuses to die, but makes death himself flee
It's so hot it burns through the impediments
Opening up the path of ultimate achievement
Without passion is without fruitful life
