The One

The One
Deemed life’s greatest mission
A single direction
Drilled in our hearts as the ultimate achievement
Impossible to start
As time, destiny and chemistry provide guidance
Blessed are the few who complete it
Neglected are the few who resist it
Slandered are those who fail at it
Shame on us who gloat at it
Closed minds
Ignorant and unkind
The One is beyond the pursuit of a person
A purpose, a passion, an ambition
A vision, a hope, a destination
A smile, a secret, an addiction
A touch, a promise, a publication
A home, a meal, a possession
A milestone, a cure, an operation
A triumph, a loss, an affirmation
Nurture the mind
To think big, have a heart
And discover there is more to The One.
