What We Fashion
What We Fashion
By Tony DeLorger © 2012
Not now not ever will dreams be realised without persistent effort,
drawn from the depths of us to manifest action in a world of limits,
to exact our wishes through the thoughts of desire,
and the needs of an ego wanting.
What we fashion is as much about clear thinking as anything,
our devotion to the ideals we nurture and the outcomes we seek,
always deviated by the doubts and alternatives we consider,
when leaving the path of our dream.
Life is always about compromise, always about flexibility,
having to adjust to an external world in constant flux,
always enticing to reconsider and change the path of struggle,
invariably the path that leads to our dream.
Success is not gained by pushing but simply focus,
the constant and relentlessness of a mind committed,
to attain what we believe is right and wanted,
what we accept as achievement.
The secret though exists ironically in easy reach,
each goal in process the benefit we seek,
never the outcomes furnishing attainment, but the process of movement
and the experience and lessons of struggle that find value.
Realising dreams is a process of effort,
however what ends is far less important than the path itself,
offering knowledge and understanding,
that success alone cannot offer.
