Poetry Slam: Blueprint of Escape

thumb-print

Journey to be great, blueprint of escape.

String along streaks, minimize mistakes.

Measure every beam, keep the tape straight,

Idealize dreams, execute late.

Plan for the best, adjust to the worst,

When hell breaks loose, you are not cursed.

When the world blames you, do not jump course,

Keep showing up, immovable force.

Problems dissolve over time, sun will again shine,

You will conquer, succeed, deliver in crunch time.

Your will a mystery, doubters stay in history,

Enemies chatter, their voices distant memories.

Nervous so you faint, practice til you ain’t,

Journey to be great, blueprint of escape.
