Target

Aiming high,
a personal best.
A challenge you set
a personal test.

Self expectation,
Focus, dedication
Targets and tasks
a resolute demonstration

An astronaut might
truly aim for the stars,
set a relative goal
no more raising of bars

Self emulation,
to better yourself
can be good for your work
but not for your health

Not everything written
or spoken
or heard
can be seen as your best
because that is absurd

A target is simply a goal
that you set
Not an absolute best
not as good as you get.

~ Andrew
Not everything has to be better than the last thing you did. I’ve come to realise this. Some of my poems I compare to poems I wrote in the past and think ‘this one isn’t as good as that one’ and it’s an unhealthy mentality to have but also a difficult one to break. My 14th poem for NaPoWriMo
