<p style="text-align: center;">At some point, you doubt</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Questions creep into your mind</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">To brood actions that may not seem necessary</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Keep doing it</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Profits are often suspended</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">So that you'd know the joy gained</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Eventually when achievement calls</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Keep doing it</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">I have seen men shed rivers of tears</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">And this for wastes in opportunities</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">When they look back, it's all regrets</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Keep doing it</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Had they tarried awhile</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Had they taking a further step, probably a little more</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">The sun like glistening stars would have crowned their heads</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Keep doing it</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Emulate my life</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">For I've never been rich by world standard</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">But I've never been poor by poor standard</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">For all the wealth out there, never my pocket dry</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Because I kept doing it.</p>

The poem is inspirational and it has a narrative seamlessly woven with philosophical touch. It is a poem that has a lot to learn from. It is accessible and vivid. It conveys feelings, reflections, and mood. You achieved these poetic ingredients through careful choice of words.

A true treat.

When all poems become riddle and inaccessible, those of us, without sufficient intellectual equipment to decode such poems will mourn for the day we were born. If you have a tremendous reservoir of sympathy for people like us, while writing a poem, you must make a few lines lucid, and at the same time spice other lines with poetic trigonometry for higher mind like yourself.
