The Moving Goal Post

Crying and crying
Life
Has given
Yet the person
Has not leapt far enough
To reach the final goal
 .
Always moving
The finish line
Forward
Faster
And farther
 .
Once that is achieved
Jumping to the next goal
When others look
They see
An overflowing life
But when the person looks
A half empty glass
Waiting to be filled
 .
What others wish to achieve
Past that
But what the person wishes
To achieve
Lost in the land of dreams
 .
Eyes forward
Hair blown back
Running at full throttle
At a goal
Far away
 .
Everyday life
Is a blur
A lost blur
Where lots of interesting sights
Birthdays
Anniversaries
Holidays
Are missed
For the greater goal
 .
But when that goal is reached
What then
Another goal
Far off
In a cursory life
