Commitment
from PAINTBRUSH

You need to write it till you get it right.

That is your job; what you were born to do.

It might not take a lifetime, but it might.


Sure, itís a burden sometimes, but itís light:

you make the rules, which then apply to you.

Thatís how you write it till you get it right,


Having that goal, keeping it plain in sight,

yet easing up, or off, since that works too.

It might not take a lifetime, but it might.


At times the taskís a breeze, at times itís tight

going, a maze, where every problemís new

and you just need to write to get it right,


Write on, Hell take the cost, by day, by night,

alone, unknown, and yes, the perks are few,

but though it takes a lifetime (and it might),


Whatís better than commitment to a fight

that brings your best out, focused on whatís true?

You have one purpose: Write it till itís right.

It might not take a lifetime. But it might.
