At The Wheel Of Ambition
Maryam Azam, Grade 10, Distance Education Centre Victoria
3rd in the 'Calling All Poets 2007' competition
The embarkation is aspiration.
Intention turns the wheel of ambition,
Emulation is the fuel that turns the tyres.
Determination holds the pedal to the floor,
Resolution grips the gearstick firmly.
Apprehension keeps from driving true,
Competition compels to hasten.
The destination is success.
