POEM: "The Breakthrough"

The Breakthrough

It begins with a concept;
A thought, a passion...
Something potential, but never quite real--
A seed within a seed.

It strokes the subconscious and pleads with the conscious
To let it be free.

When realized, it reaps the mind of endless resources,
In its quest to become corporeal;
Only then does it awaken the sense of life within you,
And cause your mind to bear witness to possibility.

You work together, day and night,
To give it life, ambition and soul;
To bring it present and future, beauty and fate,
And to make its meaning whole.

And one day you see it, naked, kinetic and true,
Anointed with the lifeblood of confidence;
You make it your duty to show the world the beauty
Of its purity: the Breakthrough.
