(Un)Reachable Aspirations

I sometimes need to convince myself

 

that I can change the hand I’ve been dealt

 

I know situations can change

 

and that there is sunshine after the rain

 

yet I can’t help but to feel so stuck

 

with my head barely above the muck

 

I remind myself to think about the bigger picture

 

great things are coming soon, though I wish it’d happen quicker

 

I tell myself that these sleepless nights are worth it in the long run

 

Even though I’d love to take some nights off to have fun

 

Though the road to turning dreams into reality is long; with lots of bumps, turns and twists

 

I tell myself that, through it all, I have to push through and persist
