Dread-not

With every achievement, comes a new checklist

Re-affirmed vision, aiming higher

Like a three-volley salute.

 

The future is not determined

By that significant other,

Principles can never be bent

For that passionate lover.

 

No matter how tempting

Stick to those beliefs

That you grew knowing

The good, not the bad.

 

Peer-pressure, Social constructs

Nothing more than barriers,

Its like having a fly trap

To catch a Dreadnought

I know right,

Laughable outcome.
