Some people appear to accomplish so much,
You wonder just how they can do it.
Whenever an obstacle gets in their way,
They manage to barrel right through it.
They honor commitments, go out on a limb
And even push on when they’re sick.
They manage to finish so much in one day,
You’d love to know what makes them tick.
They nurture their families, check in with friends;
See doctors, pay bills, go to work.
No matter what problems are waiting to pounce,
There isn’t a challenge they’ll shirk.
Such people inspire both envy and awe;
They live on a parallel plane
Which, even if most of us try to approach,
We’ll find our attempts are in vain.
