Preception Issue

Updated on August 18, 2012

He drove himself hard.
To be a success,
to be recognized
by others.

For the value
of opinion.
He pushed onward
for things
of little substance.

Always fighting
to win approval.
To be accepted
by standards.

Not capturing
the true purpose
of life.
Driven by forces
not fully understood.

Finally, in the end
joining the ranks
of his fellow brothers
in duty.
