Print Save Become a Fan
Haven't been able to write for awhile, so you all get to read stuff written ages ago, lol, sorry.
Burning ambition marks me
Blood red across my cheek
Like a slap
For being impertinent
Enough to know what I want
To go after it
Thumbing my nose at convention
And the ones who try
To hold me back
Single-minded in my determination
Obsessed with my desire to have it all
Suspicious of those
Who advise me to slow down
Before someone gets hurt
Okay, but at least I know
Where I'm going
I know what I'm after
And I WILL have it
No one and nothing will stop me
So maybe my "star-quality"
Is only in my head...
Well it's MY head
And if I'm delusional
Well dammit, they're MY delusions
And in the end, it will be ME
Who pays for it all
I won't ask anyone else to pick up the tab
After all, it was MY guts and MY desire
That brought me this far
And if I fail (Because I might)
I won't blame anyone but myself
For whatever reason
I believed I was made for a far better life
And I'm beginning to find out the hard way
That the bright lights
Are only shooting stars
And the crowds screaming my name
Just want me to join the wet t-shirt contest
The riches and fame... well you know...
Taking off your clothes
For a roomful of strangers
Can be lucrative, if you're in the right strip-joint
And they call me by name
When they hear my music start.

|Scada ... the poem is fine...whatever you feel about yourself; your determination, your 'grit' is excellent. Nothing wrong with making yourself number one. Once you control yourself and your actions; then you will be able to use your talents to be a big help to others if you want to. Excellent writing. Bill Murray|
