I didn’t come this far
To only come this far
I came this far
So I could never stop
I didn’t climb the ladder
So I could stand on the top rung
I climbed the ladder
So I could reach higher
So if you have a problem with ambition
Don’t worry, I’ll be high above you soon.
I know the finish line was here
But I moved it farther, higher, forward.
I’m not done when you say I’m done
I’m done when I say I’m done
Don’t hold your breath for that day to come
The ocean is more than like a lake
A river is more than a faucet
And I am more than anyone thought I could be.
Thanks for reading, I appreciate it. Please check out some of my other pieces; I’ve posted several good poems in the past few days!
