Without It People Perish
And you are famished
Something you must nourish
The platform for you to flourish
It gives direction and introduction
Defines destination and motion.
Harbours unction to function.
Requires concerted action not reaction
Faith with corresponding action.
Increases your acceleration.
Your reason for being

Frees you to be yourself
Goes far beyond self
Here, you can be your best.
And you can beat the rest
And have your rest
And your greatest of tests.
It will be opposed
By barriers and foes
To rise, you must be on your toes.
Amidst delay stay in its throes
Without it, youíre empty

Must come from God
Anchored on His word
Not what people want
Or what you want
But what He wants
It is your assignment
A unique endowment
Requiring commitment
And empowerment
For fulfilment
Giving you a divine wing.

Your high calling
Gives your life meaning
It informs your future
Shows you the right picture
Something you must nurture
With God it is insured and secure
Shapes your tomorrow
And always needs to grow
Takes away your sorrow
For it, you must invest and sow
Itís your dream stream and gives you a go.

Since "Vision" is this week's topic - I assume you are saying "Without 'Vision', people perish"? It was muddled, but then free verse is always made up of just bits and pieces of words - so that the reader must study to find the point...With another read or two - I know I will find a satisfactory answer; for this took time and effort and a talented mind to write; it is definitely food for thought. Thank you. Well done.
