What is the secret of fidelity?
What makes a commitment endure?
How does one not get distracted from one’s path?
How does one not waver after a while?
Steadfastness is an ongoing struggle
The destination is always far away
And no matter where we are on the path
It will remain in the distance
Temptations and distractions abound along the way
One cannot always close one’s eyes to them
Vigilance is needed
Daily effort is needed
The goal is lofty
And the climb ongoing
