The Next Level

by Jason Tomlinson 

Today is plenty – no further challenge necessary 

no more drama needed and certainly no more scary 
but frequently I find my mind getting on what’s ahead
I’m focused on the next level – I dwell on the future instead 
I don’t admit this as a healthy way of thinking 
rather it is better avoided as it leads to sinking 
down in the chasm of worry and chronic anxiety 
concerned about what I may or may not see
who can tell how the next level will appear?
no one at all I’m not there I’m here
and if I focus on this level I’m right where I need to be 
if I master this level the next level will be given to me
