DISCIPLINE IN GENTLEST LOVE

“Discipline is remembering what you want.”

And remembering
and remembering.

So keep
a strong, good memory–

if you wish
to delve down deep
into your full capacity,
and stake your birthright claim. . .

Dig in those heels,
with pluck, tenacity,
be ever your best you–

know your spirit,
and what feeds that crucial
part of you–
understand what it can
and what it will not do,

with unflinching eyes,
which keen,
appraise
your very Being
in all veracity. . .

And with gentle love,
allow yourself
to play your way,
keep up the game–

and you will effect quite wondrous things
somewhere in the vicinity
of the lofty dreams
for which you aim.
