A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
I have been trying to find what exactly
Is it that has motivated me
To get out of my comfort zone and seek
To climb yet another peak
In the past- I am trying to find
The impetus given to my mind
That propelled me to seek adventures new
I need to know, I really do
Now that stuck in a rut I feel
Unmotivated, I’ve been waiting for life to reveal
An exciting opportunity that I can capture
Something that can send me into rapture..
That is not happening and so I need
To be proactive and find inspiration indeed
That would galvanize me towards a goal
Bring succour to my restless soul..
Feeling uninspired, ultimately one day
I decided, to my own dismay
I could not climb another mountain
I could not push myself again
I could not accomplish another feat
I would be contented in my current seat-
What happened next is ironic, I’d say
Just saying to myself “I could not” paved the way
For me to get over inertia profound-
Suddenly motivation came around
And once again I found myself neck deep
In an exciting project, oblivious of rest or sleep
It became my most ambitious venture to date
Another achievement I found on my plate!
With this rigmarole all I wanted to convey
Is that what motivates me every day
Is an inner critic that whispers in my ear
“This is beyond your capability, my dear”
To prove the critic wrong, the fighter in me
Takes on this serious responsibility
And pushes me forward relentlessly
Until a new pinnacle is reached by me!
