By Michael W. Raley
There is a man who’s a bit of an odd duck.
Long ago he dispelled the myths of meritocracy and luck.
When the man turned forty,
He began to question the official agreed upon story.
He went in search for peace of mind,
As he wanted to make the best use of his time.
In spite of the obstacles, he set a new course,
Charging ahead and seemingly uphill with will, determination, and force.
There were days he wanted to quit,
But deep down his spirit wouldn’t dare hear of it.
The man didn’t seek fame, fortune, or glory,
He simply wanted to rewrite the chapters of his story.
