I have my fingers, my toes,
some people in my life,
some material and financial state.

perhaps a nightmare,
perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."

Take time to work.
It is the price of success.
