Stay Focused

When you feel so strong and others think you can do no wrong
When others say that your roots are deep, and the harvest is ready for you to reap

When both the mighty winds blow and the pouring rains flow

When your feet are planted solid on the ground
And others think that nothing can turn you around

When others believe and trust in you
But forget that you like others are human too

When you see a seed growing in your heart
And telling you how great you are

Then it’s time you stop and look again
That seed is not helping you to gain

It’s a wild weed growing fast
And its dirty deed will not quickly pass

Pluck out the weed and do give heed
Stay focused on your mission with full speed

What Has To Stay

What Has To Stay short poem
