Optim Gifted
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2008


When things don't work for me
And I'm not where I want to be
I don't like this street
I don't feel I want to breathe

When things don't seem to lurk my way
And all my thoughts just lead astray
And I don't see the answers I seek
At the peak of uncertain graves

And when I feel my foot is sore
I feel like I can't move no more
And when I'm at the peak of effiiciance
I feel like I just can't be bored

But when I aim for
All that I am
I can't focus
Or understand

And when I claim all
That I thought
My life had told
That I had bought

My memory shakes me
Experiences hasp
All that I live for
It's all in my grasp
