Ambitious Hunger - Poem by Compton Wright

Had a taste of success for the first time as although it was short lived
Its taste was so enriched with happiness and greatness wrapped into one
As I was surrounded by legends and leaders with multitalented purposes
I felt like I belong here like as if I had a seat reserved for me to join them
But a sudden departure has been taken place and I was left alone here
While a letter was left on the table where my inspirational heroes sat
As the letter was summarizing saying that I have to prove my worth…
Fueled with ambition making an oath that I won’t settle with average

So I raised my expectations upon my actions and thoughts given out
Hoping the work that I created would surpass even the greatest poets
That ever lived to touch a pen or pencil would be scared to pass me
As I become obsessed with the pursuit of happiness I found myself
Hungering for more diverse ideas, more blueprints, more imagery
As letting my words become so vivid that my poems would become
Not 3rd but 4th dimensional inside your minds to enhance your souls
Letting you realize your supreme potential and invoiced your thoughts

Stop thinking inside that little box that is trapped outside of your creativity
Become more hungry and ambitious for your dreams that you hold onto
As others are happy to be average Joes but I see them as mere jokes now
As get used to wisdom and realizing that ignorance is not bliss but disgusting
Instead of looking what inside the box but what’s has grown out outside of it
Feeling so close to succeeding my expectations but the more progress I make
The harder the odds of maintaining success decreases in front of me right now

Yet I feel like this drive of ambition won’t quit the pursuit as this chase I’ve follow
Will help me reap the rewards of just hard work and determination I given here
Time was good to the young poet as it made him mature and wiser by each day
As this ambitious hunger that feels bottomless only makes me proud to be prideful
As never give up any dreams and continue to try until your heart gives up on you
I’ll meet you at the top and greet you with a warm welcome to your perfect life
