Aim High

The goal posts we aim for
Sometimes the pie in the sky
More often something way too low
Because we are wary of greed
Our ambitions tempered
By the words of our childhood and beyond
“Money doesn’t grow on trees”
“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”
Fear of failing and embarrassment
Sets our sights closer to the ground
But all that we need to know
Loss contains way more lessons
Success doesn’t quite have
And belief in yourself and what you deserve
The might of the Universe and what can be done
Pave the way to reach loftier goals
Than you are currently setting
