Poem: "BUILDING A FUTURE"

This is today's first freebie, prompted by LJ user My_partner_doug.  This is an acrostic poem, which you can learn to write yourself.


"BUILDING A FUTURE"


Bringing your dreams
Under control and
Into manifestation is a
Lengthy labor at best.
Deciding what you want
Is the easy part:
Now you must
Go the distance.

Anything. Everything.

Forget the rest; sacrifice it
Until you attain your
True desire.
Unless you can, the future will
Remain outside your grasp,
Eternally.
