Reflections on a shadow of ambition

by cricketjeff on November 7, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Go out into the world and have a go
Be all the things you know that you can be
See all the wonders of the land and sea
No other man can know the things you know
      So what if there are doubts that others sow
      Why would you fear to ask the question why
      Cry foul at those who seek to make you cry
      No other man can know the things you know
Low expectations keep achievements low
You have to be the biggest fan of you
Do all the deeds you know that you can do
No other man can know the things you know
      Go out into the world and have a go
      No other man can know the things you know

Author notes

It is either a shadow echo sonnet, or an echo shadow sonnet, either way it is what it is
