Progress towards success

If the moon be
The top of the ladder
That’s my target;
Progress I can touch
As rung by rung
I climb;
I may be far down the ladder,
But I like my progress;
I see the top as a real possibility;
And that’s where I
Want to belong;
Getting there fast
Is not my priority;
My priority is to get there.
And on that I am bent.
I do face obstacles,
But know what to do;
If I can’t clear them,
They have to become
And when I feel discouraged,
I will motivate myself.
