Quest For 300

This is a declaration

to cast out all defamation

A sound leap of faith

trusting that the way is safe

Digging deep into my soul

add a light to this black hole

Challenging every part of myself

pulling down unused portions off my mental shelf

Learning as I move along

allowing myself to sort right from wrong

Using my minds’ eye to accomplish great things

wanting to know what this could bring

There is a chance to do this and win

but if I don’t I can still hold up my chin

I aim to make self proud

not really looking for approval from the crowd

However I want all to watch and see

that I’m willing to give out this many pieces of me

Its time for me to stop being shy and meek

at the end of this, a prize I seek

No awards or trophies of any kind

my quest is simply peace of mind
