A Winning Board

The ambition was to have a winning board,

To make it through despite the doubtful mist.

It’s often hard to stay on the right course.

When it felt like routine, they became bored,

Letting important details to get missed

And causing the journey to feel more coarse.


In moments, when it felt extremely coarse,

They came together to review their board.

Refining the points that may have been missed.

With determination, they cleared doubt mists;

They found new things and were no longer bored,

They maintained focus to keep them on course.


There were surprises that popped on their course,

That caused the ride to become quite coarse.

They were daring and didn’t become bored,

Always returning to their winning board.

All their problems became forgotten mist,

For they were diligent with nothing missed.


Some troubles couldn’t simply be dismissed,

They were needed to run the complete course.

They caused delays with their doubtful mist,

A reminder that sometimes life is coarse.

Focus could always return to the board,

Providing challenge so they don’t get bored.


On a journey, one doesn’t remain bored,

Though comfort and safety are often missed.

It’s all a part of being on the board,

To help keep everything on its course.

It matters not, should it start feeling coarse;

It only matters to survive the mist.


A journey gets hazy gathering mist;

Without new ways, they will start to feel bored.

In boredom, all relationships feel coarse,

And everything gets hastily dismissed.

Hard to get everyone back on course,

And remain focused on the winning board.


Nothing is missed without a doubtful mist,

They’re never bored when they stay on their course.

Though it’s coarse, they are still a winning board.
