The Moving Goal Post

Crying and crying
Has given
Yet the person
Has not leapt far enough
To reach the final goal
Always moving
The finish line
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
Are missed
For the greater goal
But when that goal is reached
What then
Another goal
Far off
In a cursory life
