The Fate of Progress (A Goal)

You’ ve got what you want, Fate

We fought for it together

Now I languish waiting here

Through wet, cold and wicked weather

I once championed the sky

And battled through the Earth

I fight as hard and fair as I can

And you know what it’s worth

*

I love your mind and your body

And I’d love to know your soul

But the harder I fight for all of us

The higher up you raise the goal

*

The world we want

Waits in our plans

Moving with the days

Sometimes falling out of reach

Days flinch

And just miss

Steady patience pays

Accidentally falling

Misunderstanding

And we may go our own ways 

but then we finally connect for real

We burn through the misty haze

Resilience in sun rays

Clouds are just a phase

*

You’ve got what you want, Fate

We caught up to it together

Now I’m in anguish waiting here

Behind walls of hot and wicked weather

I once championed the sky

And battled through the Earth

I fight as hard and fair as I can

And you know what it’s worth

*

I love your mind and your body

And I’d love to know your soul

But the harder I fight for all of us

The farther back you set the goal

*

The world we want

Waits in our plans

Choosing all new days

In time learning what we teach

Days sink in 

We take risks

Steady patience pays

Words of wisdom calling

Open rejection

And we may go our own ways 

but then we finally agree what’s real

A basic understanding stays

Truth can awake and amaze

Conflict is just a phase

*

You’ve got what you want, Fate

We bought into it together

Now I’ve been challenged

Waiting here

In ever-changing wicked weather

I once championed the Sky

And battled through the Earth

I fight as hard and fair as I can

And you know what it’s worth

*

I love your mind and your body

And I’d love to know your soul

And the harder I fight for all of us

The more clearly I can see my goal
