Accomplishment - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

Jennings said it with eloquence
"there were days when we were hungry ...
nights when we were cold ..."
here in my time agree with him
desire aches deep within my soul

desire for accomplishment
that simple mindless act
which takes from what isn't
and gives something little back

thus edging satisfaction closer
to the center of one's thoughts
and faithfully applying goodness
with that little bit of heart

to gain in satisfaction takes
a special kind of push
which feeds on want of action
with harsh beating of the muscle bush

do not feel an institution as
here in this brotherhood of man
requires great solutions
to everyones good plans

just purpose and direction
those twin peaks of mountains large
which block our path throughout
what we can and can't force on

trick which has been folded
into skills and tools of usage brilliant
convert those twin impediments now
into bricks for roads of further movement
