Nestled in secure comfort,
Thankless desire peeks outward.
Goals standards mount high
Cold criticism, minds judge

Road to success, hurdles galore
Lost perspective, unrelenting pride
Shattered hopes, rigid assumptions
Joy, frustration, bottled grudge

Drowning in fearsome depths
Floating forms mocking smile
Filthy teeth, bloodshot eyes
Success, identity, material mirage

Beyond effort, outcome and logic
Flickering hope, ardent prayer
Firm devotion, touched by grace
Eyes thirsting the blissful visage
