I Need a Breakthrough

I need a breakthrough,
A radical departure
From my current plateau,
To an area where endorphins flow,
In proportion to the challenges
I encounter.

I need a breakthrough,
Not incremental steps
To emancipation of thought;
But a bold new mindset to evoke
True innovation.

I need a breakthrough,
Ascending spiral staircases
To adventure;
To a domain where the air
Is different;
An elevation where
I must train vigorously
To sustain excellence
Of another kind.

I need to breakthrough
The stifling strait jacket
Of my staid routine;
To acquiesce to the audacity
To explore and find
The alternative sides
Of my capacity.

I need a breakthrough
To penetrate the glass ceilings,
To disintegrate the feelings
That the past and present
Are the best I can do.

I need a breakthrough
To build the images my mind
Has shared with me,
So that I can do
What is required to be
The type of person
I have been privileged to see.
