Path to success

I came this far and then no more
handcuffed gestures mourn shackled feet


parched lips, thirsty near the shore
I came this far and then no more


It took years to get past the lure
struggling mind and heart to meet


I came this far and then no more
handcuffed gestures mourn shackled feet

  1. I like how you broke this up into four stanzas of couplets. It helps organize it visually.

    I like the sense of struggle and the pair of gestures and feet both bound and the struggling mind and heart. These pairs go well with the couplet arrangement of the stanzas.
