complete

He sifted through his vision board,
Checking off each image in turn,
Purchased he had, A Mustang built by Ford,
He’d attended that concert in the desert where the man does burn,
A guitar, he had learned how to play more than just a chord,
A turntable, beat matching was a skill for which he no longer need yearn,
On and on through the images he went,
Marriage, home ownership, pets, a family, done this and that feat,
Until finally the realization, smiling, a shiver up his spine sent,
He had everything in his life he had ever wanted, he was complete.
To empty the board, one by one he took the images down, their usefulness was spent,
Then he started to fill it up again with images of the destiny his future self would meet.

    • Yep, hopeful is a good way to describe. I’d also say exhilarating… because you never know what new adventure, what new desire, what new goal you are going to work towards achieving.
