STRAIGHT LINE
(7/19/15)


sometimes
there's no
other way

focus
upon the goal

keep
our heads
down

move forward

with as little
distraction
as possible

obsessed
with the singularity
of the mission

those watching
us
simply shake
their heads

we're no
fun
anymore

but the work
has to be
the priority

even though
the effort
is vital only
because we insert
vitality
into it

they think
that we're missing
out

missing out
on what?

what better
definition
of purpose
is there?

most days
we are
consumed

we live
intensely
within the moment
of each task

we feel
as if
we'll never
die

we only
look forward
to completing
the objective

to beginning
the next
