I Still Have My Ambition

Updated on April 16, 2013

They gonna love me for my ambition

already dreamed the dream

now, I am on a mission

Yes, I can see the vision

Now is the time, to make a decision

Many times rejected

but I still have my ambition

still fighting the recession

now immune to rejections

Try harder than the last try

No money yet

but I got my ambition

overcoming pain and loss

even without gratificaion

so I try harder than the last try

Nothing to lose

as I pursue my mission

cuts and wounds will heal

ways and means towards the vision

never mind the sleep loss

I am willing to pay any cost

Now I realise

Now is the time

headstrong forward with my AMBITION

One of the main Rastafarian beliefs is to look out for the children of the streets. All these children on the streets are part of the Rastafarian culture.


Respect The Poor or...: Shows the importance of respecting the poor. There are serious consequences for disrespecting the poor. Many are blinded by wealth and forget about showing love to the poor.

      Two of my favorite poets come to mind while reading this. Bob Dylan sang "When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose". Peter Tosh sang "I got to pick myself up, dust myself off, start all over again". Every thing will be fine!! Peace!! Tom

      A person's life without a dream is one boring life. May it be dreaming of wealth, passion. love, family or vacation. A dream keep us focus and working hard to achieve something out of reach at the moment :)
