Ambition short poem

Since decades long ago, one wish unreached,

Still haunts my soul with all tenacity;

I know the Devil has my fences breached,

And might have crept right through my sanity;

The call of pride keeps dinning in my ears,

Like trumpets of approaching cavalries,

My action so deferred to later years,

Has youth and wasted time as penalties;

But life unsung lays bare before Death’s door,

As reckoning recounts of feats achieved,

The annals of the simple and the poor,

Boast not of pages proud to be perceived;

…That lends to epitaph with gilt-edged name,

…Down under, the miasma is the same.

Walk with me, till moon rises on the griefs of the dark, and the tongue tastes the pain of centuries. On the erected dome when the golden leaves start a flame which throws up an image of a prophet. My
