Ambiguous Ambition

Ambition is a driving force, Admirable in many ways, That's only, of course If nobody else has to pay Ambition can help you prosper, And live life to the full Ideas that you had fostered Start to become fruitful. People look up up you, Admire your "get up and go." Some may envy your success, Others think you are on show. He has always been ambitious, Reaching for the stars People can be malicious Ambition can cause scars. The ambitious can be ruthless, In their pursuit of acclaim Their one purpose in life is to Amass money, power and fame. We need ambitious people, So we may forge ahead We don't need power-hungry people Who are greedy and easily led. Life loses it's value when the self is satisfied Until they find out there is nowhere left to hide Ambition is a driving force, Admirable in many ways, That's only, of course If nobody else has to pay!
