Motivation doesn’t exist

There are people actuated by joy.
Few others are impelled by pain.
Discipline can drive; so can fears.

Many of us dream similar dreams.
Few who dream do it whatsoever.
Few others choose to focus elsewhere.
Either way, is it not motivation?
But in reality, how's it gauged?
Often, success and failures quantify zest.

Do they really display one's fervour?
Aren't they imposters of one's impetus?
Whatsoever, victories and defeats are one.

Infact, there isn't any magical boost.
Our needs are the intense propellers.

We either do it or don’t.
