I mean it definitely makes sense

It’s even obvious I would say

That people need value and meaning

To find pride in their work and play


But is this how I operate?

Yeah, I need meaning and motivation

But it doesn’t come from the display

It’s in the journey, the creation


I think I’ve reflected enough to see

I just need to be passionate in the doing

and if my paper gets shredded at the end

It’s fine, as long as I had fun pursuing


But maybe I do need that validation

And I’ve just never been proud enough

Or produced a paper deserving of praise

Maybe I’ll soon find this same motivation

But only if my work isn’t so rough

And I’m content with what I did through DukeEngage
