Sweet Ambition

Sweet Ambition


Our attitude to life is of real significance

as it can be the embodiment of our magnificence

Ambition is the motivation we need

in order to turn ideas into deeds

Our personality must also come into play

as does our behaviour in every way

Humility may seem contrary to ambition

nor is it an attribute of submission

It displays within us a permanent humanity

a postivie force which destroys all vanity

The way ahead may encounter many obstacles 

which will try to drown us with its tentacles

But persevereance and hope in their unity

will give us the strength of continuity

Be bold and forthright in your aim

but keep in check your ability to remain the same

Our uniqueness is to our great advantage

as we discard any unnecessary baggage
