Sisyphean Troubles

Opportunities vast as the ocean,
Potential skyrocketing to the moon,
But struggling to remain in motion.

Hard to find purpose, passion, devotion;
YouTube, like Zeus, captured me in a swoon.
Opportunities vast as the ocean.

I wish I could make this locomotion:
Butterfly blossoming from a cocoon,
But struggling to remain in motion.

Lacking motivation and emotion,
To fatigue I will never be immune.
Opportunities vast as the ocean.

Obviously life's never smooth as lotion;
Can't imagine turning into a prune,
But struggling to remain in motion.

Slowly crumbling, like rocks in erosion,
I can feel myself approaching the high noon;
Opportunities vast as the ocean,
But struggling to remain in motion.
