I Am Hoping You Have Chosen To Soar - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am not out seeking,
To crush your feathers!
Nor do I wish...
With my own ambitions,
To search the sky...
To see how high you fly!

I am hoping you have chosen to soar.

And if in your flight,
Your eyes are on me...
To see whether or not,
You are ahead...
Or I may overtake your lead.
You are not flying high just to succeed!
You are hoping in your heart,
My ego is not pleased.

I am hoping you have chosen to soar.
Nothing less.
Nothing more.
I have my own sights,
On how high I choose to fly!
There is just too much sky,
To keep you blocked in my vision...
And locked in my eyes!

I am hoping you have chosen to soar.
Nothing less.
Nothing more.
Your success is yours to explore!
