The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Every time I hear that phrase I’m tempted to ask questions.
There’s a road, really?
My goal for this Daily Prompt on Great Expectations was a less spiritual and a more practical business spin on the old cliche.
Knowing nothing about business, I doubled down and wrote in verse.
This poem is dedicated to Seth Godin who continually ‘delivers’, or as he calls it, ships.
I thought I would,
but somehow my intension
never quite got in sync
with her good friend, my invention
They couldn’t get their act together
missed their targets and their goals
failing miserably to deliver
to reach their full potential
creating something really ‘sweet’
You would have been delighted
would have been amazed for sure
would have ordered by the truckload
any price paid to procure
Now none of that will happen
the gaping void still unfilled
speaks loudly that intension
without action never billed.
About 85% of the time I blog about spiritual ideas.
If you want to know how to avoid the Road to Hell you can find lots of other posts on this blog about Jesus Christ and what He did for you.
Feel free to ask a question or leave a comment about Seth Godin, Jesus, Hell, or what product I’d like to invent if I was in business instead of Christian ministry.
