Exposed Angles

Moments mean nothing,
If not spent toiling away
With thoughts and deeds
Deliberate and dedicated.

Every conscious hour
Used to work towards
Giving life to desires,
And realizing dreams.

Actively bringing forth
The very best intentions,
Then willing and enabling
Propulsion towards aspirations.

Making the most of each minute
Tends to benefit the future,
Which is worth every sacrifice
Made today for tomorrow.

The rewards of the effort
Is for the generation coming,
Who through our words and works
May garner some goodness.

And what is remembered
Isn’t the blood, sweat, and tears,
But exposed angles of insecurities
Overcome in creating the present.
