Ambitious People

    

The author:

Unfulfilled,

Reaching,

Stretching,

Ninety-thousand words the goal.

 

The singer:

Memorize,

Expand the range,

Prepare and train,

An entertaining, pleasant presence

Liking for the audience.

 

The painter and photographer:

Eyes that see,

Composition, color shades,

Nuances of every grade.

 

Who is important –

What and who’s

Significant to only you.

 

The lawyer, doctor, engineer,

The lab technician, cook, and waiter,

Business man, entrepreneur:

 

And all:

What’s honest, ethical,

What’s brave and bold,

What’s true for you

And what you think will hold

Forever.

Even when you know it won’t.
