Poem: My Quest
Seeing Your Hopes, Aspirations and Dreams as Your Children
An excerpt from John C. Maxwell's, Success One Day at a Time." Maxwell Motivation 2000.
Do you take care of your children? You may never have thought of your dreams as children, but that's what they are. They are your offspring---the joy of your day and the hope of your future. Protect them. Feed them. Nurture them. Encourage them to grow. Care for them for some day they may take care of you.
Cherish your visions
and your dreams as they are the
children of your soul;
the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
~~ Napoleon Hill
Oh, how I envy those who live life on the edge, their fearlessness, their drive, the open roads that lie ahead. Practicality and caution undermine my urge to run, changing the trajectory, rendering me undone.
Stability and sanity serve as anchors, an albatross pledged, rancor's best friend. Yet, I grasp this vision that I know will come to pass, before more pain will multiply and amass..... that I am destined to board a vessel in the sky, and with these tears I do belie, that the journey I seek to undertake, will be to fulfill that burning yearning ache.
To move to a place of higher ground where dreams are made and souls are found.

Dedication to Bill Holland
If you don't know Bill, AKA billybuc (firstname.lastname@example.org )on the hub, you should come to know this man and his work. He has not only dedicated himself to his writing, but to the members of this fine virtual writing community.
Bill beautifully highlights many writers, helping them find an audience and gain needed support without ever anticipating a return on this investment. He is a beautiful human being and a model for our community.
I dedicate this hub to him for many reasons, but particularly because one of his current pieces really resonated with me, touching a nerve, so much so, it inspired me to write the above poem. The article I am referring to is the one on having the courage to seize the day, or in his example, the moments of carpe diem, something I let die inside me over the past two years but not anymore.
So, thanks Bill!
