Unwilling Competitor


The last hope or the lost hope,
only future time will tell,
is there light at end of tunnel,
intense pressure none can cope;

from top slided down the slope,
now hard to climb up out of the well,
enjoyed fun, ignored warning bell,
never really tried, threw away last rope;

boat in storm without oar or rudder,
will gone, tired and desire feign,
thoughts of those relying boat cause shudder,
searching great gains, with little or no pain;

confident of final peak, no rope or ladder,
for now, lack the fire and will to strain.
