Let’s Be Solution Focussed

Let’s be solution focussed
Less being so intent
On all our problems, woes and strife
That push in less relent

Let’s map out a way forward
Consider hitches too
Then board the bus determined to
Bringing goals right into view

Where aims are clearly marked out
Our vision’s crystal clear
And motivation surges through
Our head from ear to ear

Where persistence is the buzz word
With dedication’s might
Encouraged by what’s gone before
To get to the end sight

And then when we’ve discovered
This way’s the way to go
Let’s sit back, contemplate, enjoy
And just go with the flow

Life’s Mountains

I stood and saw a mountain
It loomed ahead so tall
Blocking the way, or so it seemed
Just like a huge brick wall

It soared right up into the clouds
So steep; so very high
A massive mountain in the mist
That stood against the sky

Ahead a single track of sorts
Uneven and quite rough
Covered in rocks and scree and stones
That said ‘Give Up – it’s tough’

Yet somewhere in the distance
A small ray of light shone through
That lured me to just carry on
To head towards the blue

So small it seemed insignificant
Yet with magnetic might
It pulled me; drew me onwards til
The end came into sight

A magnet that we might call ‘will’
The will to win; succeed
That failed to let me quit or stop
As will became a need

And need became persistence
Determined to achieve
To battle on and reach the top
Inspired to just believe

Believe that any mountain that
We face will fade away
When mind and body join as one
To win through day on day
