Beyond The To-Do List

Everything you’ve ever wanted lies
beyond your to-do list.
So don’t resist.
Each wish you’ve ever cast
All the hopes that you’ve amassed
No matter how daft.

Once you’ve written it down and made the plan
What happens next is all in your hands.

The list is not enough.
It can be tough to take action
But for your own satisfaction
Do what needs to be done.

In years to come
Imagine what you might say
If the list went unchecked
And your chance slipped away.
Then in the reverse
Wonder how it might be
If all your dreams came true
And at last you felt free.

You see, there are people in this world
Who we hold in esteem
As they seem to have it all;
They’re living OUR dreams.

But we’re forgetting their struggles
Their sacrifices. Their why.
And while we’re busy watching their magic
Our own time is slipping by.

So what’s on your list
And where will it take you?
Make an effort to make it.
Don’t simply make do.
