stepping stones

what
what is blocking your way
what obstacle
won’t let you through

you’re only a stone’s
throw away
those obscure obstructions

it’s all in your mind
it’s all in your fears
that you might
not succeed

please
drop the excuses
drop the apologies
of why
it didn’t occur

see
the gold
at the finish line
seize
the prize
when you realize
the obstacles
were merely
stepping stones
