Mr. Intrepid Inventor's Quest for the Holy Grail of Success

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 12 years.

Been struggling to come up with a decent formula for success

One that could ultimately rival Einstein's E=MC2 equation

Overly confident in the plan but struggling to get it off the ground

Unsure if there are flaws in just the design plan

Or if reaching beyond a presumed station in life as a regular

Jack and Jill climbing up that stupid hill continuously

Unable to get to the top and see what was on the other side

Had a concept in development for close to 20 years

Sound idea but the technique needed a lot of fine tuning

Appeared to be close to making this version come to fruition

Dreamt of being able to get this refried carcass off the ground

Even if it was only a few feet less than once considered

More than what was expected from a working stiff

Who learned things through experience, creativity and know-how

Imagined the possibilities that this idea could work

The thrill of soaring through the clouds to a better life

One where a mundane routine wasn't a factor at all

Able to take a sledgehammer to the black alarm clock

That once populated the nightstand to the right of the bed

No need to ever punch a time clock ever again

Ready to help pay off my debt, as well as my family's

Afraid of another setback taking place once again

What would happened if the bamboo broke or the ground too wet

From last night's overpowering thunderstorm

Too many variables to think about as the moment drew closer

Tired of the skeptical looks from certain family members

Too conventional to understand a dream years in the making

Rome wasn't built in a day; neither was this concept

Let's take it one day and one step at a time

Ready. Set. Run like the wind.

How far will it go? Only the wind and your feet will know.

Have faith, patience, and a little help from your friends to do the rest.


Time to shatter all expectations and routine at the same time.
