Till the wheels fall off

Drumbeats, drumbeats, drumbeats
My soul is searching, searching, searching
My pulse is rising, rising, rising
My heart is pounding, pounding, pounding

I sit silent and meditate
Hoping for my sails of thought
...to catch the winds of motivation and inspiration
I have a value which I wish to improve soon
The urge in my heart is impatient to wait
I want to start now, I want to go now
That was yesterday, so here I am today
Exactly where I wanted to be as I wanted to be
Still I want to go farther, faster and faster
Still, my ideal dream seems further and farther
Something at the back of my mind assures me
It will all come to be... it will all come to pass
And that I absolutely believe
Only problem is I’m not good at waiting
I want it all and I want it now
From dawn to dawn I’m busy on every clock
Day after day still seeming not to move an inch
But I still must persist
I must keep on pushing and pushing
And when I’ve pushed my all I’ll still push some more
I’m in a different world from the one in my mind
...and I’m feeling all alone
These wordings are the SOS from my soul
Hoping the Infinite Mind may recognise and respond
My life is for the purpose of heeding a call
Each day on the grindstone of practice I sharpen my skills
Only eager to be me in the ways that only I can originally be
I believe in history to in the future appreciate me for being me
For I can never be anyone better than they are
But I can be me better than I was
So I must see the bottom inside of every cupful of coffee
I must see the light of dawn to know that it’s time to catch a little sleep
I must give my all with the promise of all
...for this is the opportunity I sought
I’m heeding the call thus pleasure fills my soul
Knowing I still have capacity for more
Soon I’ll reach the finish line and when I reach it
I’ll push it further to the limits beyond
I will never stop for as long as my heart beats on
I’m on a rugged path with my heavy cart of impossible dreams
I must push and push and push... and push some more 
Till the wheel falls off
