Simple Coffee

Staring at this cup of coffee
The steam rising and disappearing
Wondering when life got complicated
It was all simple
It was my passion that changed it
Chase the dream
The feeling of only doing what you love
Throwing away the certainty and security
Rushing head first into the unknown
Praying to the Gods it will happen
That it will happen soon
Ignoring it might take you a lifetime
Overlooking that fact
Disregarding that hard work is involved
Sacrifice is needed and your undying dedication demanded
All you see is the end of the road
Not the mountain that that road sits on
Why couldn’t it be simple like coffee
You brew and you drink
Dreams require that you work and keep the faith
Believe that it will happen for you
But without work
It will crush you in disappointment
My dreams complicated things
All left to do now is to drink my coffee and get to work
