Jeff Rushton Poems
No end to success
Success is not the triumph over regress, Success is the power to suppress. Success is not the money or the fame, Success is, knowing you are still the same.
Trust is found
Trust in man was lost today Trust in man that is never quite regained Trust was lost when you started to betray Trust was lost when you didn't care enough to say
The strong survive lie
Only the strong survive. We all know, physically this is a lie, for all men shrivel and die. The only strength that never dies is the strength most men are proud to hide. The strength I speak of is the only strength that outlasts time.
50 States in fifty states
The journey begins with all forms of transportation, for all speeds and conditions that will persist and exist. You will travel as far as able with no destination but the desire to see and experience everything within a nation. Your means are determined by the location and situation with which you find your self in and at the time of needed transportation. Your journey begins from within the state you reside.
Faith IS success in life Faith is the catalyst within Faith is the belief to begin Faith is the foundation and the frame
The power to be To continue on being The power to become
The beauty of life lies not in its purity or perfection The beauty of life stands tall and with great attention
Slow down and run
Running after dreams that have come and gone Running in hopes of crossing the finish line with a personal best Running for the glory only seen and celebrated in a reflection Running to be what I want to be
This is me
This is my destiny My eternity, my desire to be This is me My weaknesses, my faults
The reality of dreams is as true as they seem, The only difference is the time of the occurrence A different scene, or a time not quite in synch with you at the age of the dream Irony makes every dream a reality, but only with bifocals brining into
Freedom from bondage
Freedom from strife Freedom from contention Freedom from resistance Freedom from distance
Round, Smooth, Never ending, all angles encompassing As we walk, it seems flat and a plain, smooth without restraint Yet the slopes go up and down depending on our destination and path along the globe of man North, south, east, west, all are one unless you are equipped with a compass
Competition is the life of Some The refusal to do anything but win The anger, aggression, oppression, repression, depression and social Degradation is their primary source of energetic completion
Complexity is the greatest simplicity Complexity is understood by the educated The educated are understood by their students The students are understood by their peers

No end to success
Success is not the triumph over regress,
Success is the power to suppress.
Success is not the money or the fame,
Success is, knowing you are still the same.
Success is not the power or the pride.
Success is the knowing how to hide.
Success is not a gift or gain,
Success is accepting and believing in your name.
Success is not a point or goal to seek,
Success is, believing you have never reached the peak.
