Fruitless, born a thousand times,
lies barren.

Guidance uninspired, always true in facing,
stands immobile.

Unguided inspiration, yields random motion,
driven circumscribed in destination,
going nowhere.

But fixed upon that destination,
and on inspiration lofted,
beget your dreams!

Thank you Nan

I thought I'd try something a little different this time and I'm glad you liked it. The last stanza is my favorite, but the contrasting done in the top ones seem to help emphasize it.
